Tom and I went to this and had a lot of fun. It's a unique idea for a weekend rally. The rally is the ride!

Bruce, glad you enjoyed it! We hope to see you again this year.
BTW, New Sweden will have it's usual cast of characters at your SQR.
We are shooting for best represented club for the second straight year.
I use the SQR as a starting point to head further south. I leave the SQR sunday morning
and head to Front Royal. I ride the SLD and a part of the BRP to Sherando Lake campground.
The slab it back to South Jersey Monday.
Ride well.

mmm per google ~3hours from the house.

Question, how many club members are thinking about going? I might be able to get the Stroud Manor financial committee approval so wondering if folks would like to meet up?

Oh, family obligation on that day. I cannot go. Nuts. I'll have to make it next year.

The New Sweden 450 is a lot of fun because it's a lot of riding, 450 miles in the weekend. They have a knack of finding great roads between the start and the campground. Lots of fun and good food too.

I mean the nerve some people have to schedule a marriage at the same time of a Rally. Maybe next year. I am still planning on heading up to it, thus far, especially since you perked my interest today about the level of detail they go to. Cheers.

Hey BoD, Can we get a Meetup created for this? I would like to start gauging the level of interest. As mentioned at the last Club meeting. I plan on going and if folks want to ride up together I am more than willing to tailor my time and route. If not my current plan is to get up early on Saturday and get there an hour before the start. Thanks in advance for setting up Meetup.
