The annual tree hugger’s tribute ride to sweet sap shall soon be upon us. Once again, Ron Perlik will lead hungry motorcyclists to pancake nirvana at the Highland County Maple Festival in western Virginia. This link provides more information about the festival. http://www.highlandcounty.org/maplefestival.html We’ll depart on Saturday, March 8 at 9 am from the Denny’s restaurant north of Warrenton, VA at 7323 Comfort Inn Drive. Our route will traverse Rt. 211 toward Harrisonburg, Rt. 33 into West Virginia and Rt. 220 south to Highland County. The return ride will include Rt. 250 toward Staunton. Dining will be in Blue Grass or Monterey, followed by an optional visit to a local sugar bush (maple farm). This adventure usually runs about 300 miles round-trip from Warrenton. The rain date will be the following weekend on Saturday the 15th. For more information, Ron Perlik can be reached at[masked]-4803.
