Plans are coming together as we get ready for our biggest and most exciting event of the year, our 4th Annual Motorcycle Classics Ride ‘Em, Don’t Hide ‘Em Getaway at Seven Springs Mountain Resort in Seven Springs, Pennsylvania, Aug. 9-11, 2019.

Friday night we’ll kick the event off with a welcome reception and dinner. After breakfast together Saturday at the resort’s Slopeside restaurant, we’ll gear up and head out for the Saturday ride. Routes are still being planned through the highlands, but we aim to head south this year toward the quaint historic town of Oakland, Maryland, where we’ll take a break for lunch and a chance to check out the museums, shops and more. Then we’ll saddle back up for a nice afternoon ride back to the resort, where we’ll gather for a special banquet dinner and an interview with Dain Gingerelli, discussing his racing, riding and writing career. After another breakfast Sunday morning, we’ll head back out for another ride through the Laurel Highlands, returning to the resort sometime midday.

If you still need a bike, Ride sponsor RetroTours has a limited selection of classic 1970s motorcycles available for rent, including bikes from Ducati, Triumph, Norton, Yamaha, Honda, BMW and more. Check out the 25-strong stable at, but don’t wait too long, because rentals are available on a first-come, first-served basis. Want to pile on even more miles? RetroTours will lead a 600-mile round-trip tour to Seven Springs from its headquarters in Kennett Square, Pennsylvania, through the backcountry of Maryland, West Virginia and Pennsylvania.
