"First Annual Uncle Woody's Meet and Greet Charity Ride"
Just another excuse to get a bunch of RG.Org members together for some great riding and some good ol' biker comraderie - Road Glide style! (Or it's GMAN and I feeling sorry for ourselves that we didn't get a lot of time to socialize during SW4 so we get another chance now!)

All meals on your own. Check online for dining in Berlin, or Gorham, NH and Bethel, ME. and Sunday River Ski Resort. There's everything from Sushi to Lobster, to Pizza, and good barbeque within 30 minutes of the Inn. Plus, if you were at SW4 you already know that the T&C puts out terrific food with the bakery items being made right on premises.
What YOU WILL GET is a couple of days of wonderful riding through the Notches and mountain passes of NH and Western Maine. Put together your own waterfall tour; or a covered bridge tour (there are several you can get to within 90 minutes of the Inn; take the "Road to the Sky" and ride up Mt. Washington (On a clear day you'll think you're looking at half the world stretched out below you); check out the shopping opportunities in No. Conway; take a gondola ride to the top of one of the famous ski areas; ride to Portland and the coast in 90 minutes.
You'll also have the opportunity to spend a couple days with some old RG.org friends and likely meet some new ones. When we park the bikes in the late afternoon or evening is when the fun really begins. What Uncle Woody calls, "Beer and Bullshit Time!" We very much encourage you to bring your girlfriend, fiancee, wife, or mistress. Or vice-versa for you gals.
The "Charity" part ..... We will "pass the helmet" at some point in the weekend and all donations collected will be given to a no-kill animal shelter.
Look forward to seeing you in NH in August!
