Alan Cathcart, unquestionably one of the — if not the — best-known motorcycle journalists in the world, will join us as our special guest for the 3rd Annual Motorcycle Classics Ride 'Em, Don't Hide 'Em Getaway at Seven Springs Mountain Resort in Seven Springs, Pennsylvania, Aug. 10-12, 2018.

A recipient of the Guild of Motoring Writers Journalist of the Year Award, Cathcart, a longtime motorcycle enthusiast who started out pursuing a career in law and then working in the travel industry, has been an influential voice in motorcycling since diving head first into the scene as a journalist and test rider in the 1980s.

An accomplished rider who's raced against some of the best at circuits including Daytona and the Isle of Man, Cathcart started racing in 1974, aboard a Ducati 350 single. A winner of the Sound of Thunder World Series, he also raced for Yamaha, at the same time building his career as one of motorcycling's foremost journalists. His abilities behind the handlebars and the typewriter have earned him an enviable reputation, with invitations to ride everything from modern factory race bikes to historic vintage machines. A moving force in the British vintage bike scene, Sir Alan, as he's fondly called thanks to his British background and impeccable manners, continues to ride and test both new and vintage machines to this day, a job he's not likely to give up soon.



A regular contributor to Motorcycle Classics, Cathcart also helps with judging at our vintage bike show at the annual Barber Vintage Festival, and we're thrilled that he's happily agreed to join us for this year's Ride 'Em, Don't Hide 'Em Getaway. We'll kick things off on Friday evening with a welcome reception and dinner, then rest up for the Saturday ride. After a full breakfast on Saturday morning, we'll head north to the historic city of Johnstown, Pennsylvania, a steel-industry town that at one time out-produced better-known industry leaders including Pittsburgh and Cleveland, Ohio. An 1889 flood devastated the city, but its steel industry rebounded.
