Liz Quigley – Why I Ride

An old song from the 1950’s goes like this…………’ I've been every-where, man, I've been every-where’ then the singer goes on to name famous cities all over the country. I can’t say I've been everywhere, man, but I've ridden many places, starting in upstate New York, riding a Honda while I was sup-posed to be attending classes at Oswego State Teachers College. Every day in the spring of my senior year, I would fire up my bike, then ride it across the street from the senior girls’ dorm and park it in the parking lot at the student union where all the male riders parked. I was the only girl rider! After class, I was too cool as I rode out with the boys. That’s why I started riding. Continue reading

IV HOG Ride Guidelines

Road Captains are in charge of the ride and are responsible for all ride planning and maintaining group integrity. There will be a "lead" road captain in front and a "sweep/drag" road captain in the rear of the group. Whenever possible, the road captains will use CB radios for communication. A pre-ride review will be held before each ride to review route of travel, hand signals, CB channels used, stopping plans, and safety rules. All riders should arrive with a full gas tank and an empty personal gas tank (empty bladder). The rides will be in a two column, staggered formation with each rider maintaining AT LEAST 2 seconds minimum spacing with the rider directly ahead of him and 1 second spacing behind the rider in the opposite column. Faster highway speeds require more space. Never ride along side or close behind the rider in the opposite column. Each rider has the right to expect he can maneuver the whole width of the lane to avoid obstacles, potholes, etc. Continue reading

2013 – Ride for the Heroes

Ride for the Heroes is sponsored by the Central Bucks Rotary Club in support of the Travis Manion Foundation. Proceeds benefit wounded veterans, the families of fallen heroes, and the Central Bucks Rotary Foundation. Shortly after the death of 1st Lt. Travis Manion in Iraq on Apr. 29, 2007, the fallen Marine’s mother, Janet Manion, founded the Travis Manion Foundation with a goal of honoring the fallen by challenging the living. Until her death on Apr. 24, 2012, Janet worked tirelessly to help families of other fallen service members, veterans, and active duty troops. The words her son spoke before leaving for his second and final deployment to Iraq – “If Not Me, Then Who...” – inspired Janet every day as she built the Travis Manion Foundation from the ground up. With Travis and Janet’s legacies providing a source of daily inspiration, the Travis Manion Foundation’s staff and volunteers work day and night to assist members of the military community.
