Indiana Fall Colors Ride
Hello follow CRBMW members. Sorry for the late notice but if you didn't get a chance to attend this past weekend's Falling Leaf Rally, then this may be the last opportunity for a motorcycle road trip for the year - the Indiana Fall Colors Ride!!
The trip will begin this coming Saturday, October 21st at 7am. The start location is the Indiana Visitors Center that's located in Hammond, IN near the 80/94 expressway and Kennedy Ave. Please have a full tank of gas when you arrive. If you need gas, there is a Speedway gas station as well as a McDonald's located on Kennedy Ave just North of 80/94. There is also a Cracker Barrel next door to the IVC that opens at 6am if anyone wants to have breakfast before leaving. Depending on interest, we may add a 2nd meet-up point somewhere mid-way on Saturday for those who can't meet at the IVC. If you can only do Saturday, the schedule is open to that too.
The route consists of back roads heading South until we get to Corydon, IN, which is where the Comfort Inn Hotel is located. Corydon is about 30 miles West of Louisville, KY. We'll continue day 2 of the trip on Sunday, October 22nd, traveling East to Frankfort, KY then North to Lafayette, IN, where we'll have a farewell dinner just before we all split off for the final ride home. Some of the roads we'll be taking include - Rt's 55, 52, 231,135, 58, 37, 66, 62, 60 and 421. A map of the trip is currently being finalized and it will be provided before the trip starts. The hotel cost is $89 per room + tax for either 1 king bed or 2 queen beds, however booking online should reduce the room cost. PM me if you would like to be added to the list of riders interested in going on the IFCR!!
