The rydes are always scenic and relaxing. We top off the event with a great dinner Saturday evening, hopefully with some perqs provided by some of our great sponsors. This year, "The Clutter" will be a Ryde-in, beginning Friday, May 17, 2019, a big ryde on Saturday, May 18th and a smaller coffee and pastry ryde on May 19th, followed by goodbyes and setting off back to our respective homes.

- The HoCo Loco!
MSW has spent a lot of time combing the roads of Central Maryland's Carroll, Fredrick and Baltimore Counties. Last year, we discovered some lovely day ryde options in our own Howard County and have begun charting a neat route that keeps us out of traffic, while enjoying what Maryland's "wealthiest" county has to offer. Still piecing together a few details, including potential meal stop, depending on the response. It's a neat little place we have out here, including the hills up and behind Historic Ellicott City, on over to the western side of the county. Meetup point may change based on response. Stay tuned!
- Scott n' Dawn's MSW Cookout & Pool Party!
It's a ryde in and hang out with Scott and Dawn Venker at their beautiful home in Harford County. We won't publish the address on the open announcement, but email to everyone as we close RSVPs. Those closer to their home will probably just want to ryde straight in. Yours truly is happy to lead a group out with meet up point determined as we see the responses, but probably out of Sykesville. We'll let Dawn and Scott chime in with things they might wish us to bring besides swimwear, and have asked us to keep nudity to a minimum! ;-) (Wouldn't be pretty). Seriously, they have a beautiful home and property. It's going to be a fun, relaxing day. Scott ... Dawn - You're on!

Other non-Spyder motorcycles are permitted ONLY if accompanied by a regular (Spyder Rydin') direct-relation member. No other exceptions will be made. This is PASR's gig and PASR rules prevail. PASR ryde standards and protocols are very similar to MSW. PASR notes that if at anytime a ryder compromises the fun and/or safety of a ride, its leadership team will kindly ask the offending party(s) leave the ride, ride behind the sweeper or meet us back at the hotel. THIS WILL BE STRICTLY ENFORCED FOR 2019! MSW May be asked to assist with ryde management, i.e. ryde captain duties. If you wish to assist, please coordinate through me so I can get with the PASR ryde leadership.
