Scheduled 2019 Rides and Events

* Bikes and Breakfast Ride, 14 July 2019 This is the monthly ride where we meet in downtown Clifton, Virginia to see lots of cool bikes; 0800-1100. Easy ride and fun to meet up with friends or make some new ones. The ride in May was rained out, with only four bikes that showed up. The ride in June was mostly rained out but many more bikes made it before the rain started. *

* Please submit suggestions to Allen at bigal01@gmail.com ! *

Ride of the Patriots / Rolling Thunder, 26 May 2019


Made it to Hooters for chicken wings and beer.


The last Rolling Thunder. The last Ride of the Patriots. At least, this is what we believe to be the truth at this point in time. We understand that everything has an end; after all, everything has a beginning. And so, several WORMS were able to participate in this ride of a lifetime. Woody, his grandson Aaron (new WORMS member), Sandra and Allen rode together. Other WORMS members rode too, but with other groups, such as Bob Gousy, Bill Stephan and Michael Anderson. If you were able, you rode to this last protest ride in our nation's capital. The lineup was longer than ever at Patriot Harley-Davidson. We arrived in the line around 0715, much earlier than in past years. Good thing too, as we figure more than 5,000 riders showed up for the Ride of the Patriots portion, which gets our group into the Pentagon parking lots.

Speaking of parking lots, we heard that we would actually be in the north Pentagon parking lot this year - a desirable location since they are among the first to depart for the ride along Constitution and Independence Avenues in the district. But upon arrival at the Pentagon, we spent an hour crawling along the various roadways, only to go around the Pentagon a second time until we parked on a roadway. As it turned out, we were among the first phase of bikers heading into the district, because we departed around 1:30 PM after the B-52 flew overhead at 11:50 AM to signal the start of the ride. There were many thousands of bikers behind us since most of the parking lots were still filled when we left. As we rode through the city, a bit of rain came down but not enough to cause any issues. It was a blast.

The WORMS met up at the Fairfax Hooters to enjoy a late lunch / early dinner and of course relax after this grueling ride. The sun can get to you and slow riding can result in hand cramps for your clutch hand. But it was all good. We survived and showed our respect for the patriots left behind in battles our country has fought in, from World War I to the latest conflicts in Afghanistan. It's the least we can do for our service men and women.
