Polar Bear Ride 1 Jan 2009 in DC area
For 25 yrs., the Potomac Area Road Riders (PARR) has had a Polar Bear Ride on 1 January. PARR decided to call it quits on this ride, and I wanted BMW riders to pick up the baton and run with it. I've requested and received the blessings of BMW Bikers of Metropolitan Washington (BMWBMW) Rides chairman Ed Phelps to try to do just that.
I'm hoping to be able to begin the ride at the same location it has been starting, The Sign of the Whale in Falls Church, VA. I'm thinking that in order to get more participants from Maryland, we might end the ride in Maryland. A lot of people like to watch football on New Year's Day, so I've made arrangements with the manager of Hooters of Rockville for a 20% discount on the tabs of registered riders.
Cost will be low (probably $10 per person or less), and participants will get the Hooters discount and an embroidered patch. I'll post more details as I work them out.
