Ride to Ridgecrest 2014

Rally to Ridgecrest logoMay 22-26, 2014                                       

Set aside Memorial Day Weekend for the ride of your life. We will be riding to Ridgecrest, NC for a conference with inspiring speakers then ride the Dragon in the Appalachian mountains.                                                 

If you are a new rider or have years of experience on two wheels, you do not want to miss this year’s Rally To Ridgecrest! This year, those riding from Illinois will leave Thursday morning, May 22, and meet at the Cracker Barrel in Mt. Vernon, Illinois. Kickstands up at 9:30 a.m. to begin the first leg of the journey to scenic Lenoir City, Tennessee (Just outside of Knoxville). We’ll plan to have dinner together and get a good night’s rest! On Friday morning, May 23, we’ll plan to leave the hotel at 8 a.m. and plan to ride the Cherohala Skyway and the Tail of the Dragon on our way to Ridgecrest Retreat Center, North Carolina (Just east of Asheville). Saturday will be a day to ride the scenic area roads (Blue Ridge Parkway) before the evening service. We will travel back Sunday, May 25 following the worship service.

Please e-mail at cliffwoodman@mac.com so we will know to look for you. You can also call Cliff at (618) 946-5720.
