Also wish to say Welcome, first and foremost.

I'm not really in the know but, I'm pretty sure that there will be some people that have volunteered to lead some rides around the area.  One of the things that has been suggested, and I think will be used, is a board in the lobby where people willing to lead rjdes, and those looking to join in rides, can set meetup times and places.

Of course different people have different ideas of the perfect ride distance, pace, time, number of stops, road type, etc. so the goal will be to team people up in a group that fits their riding style.  It won't be perfect, but it will be an attempt to help new members feel more welcomed, and enjoy the event more.

There will be ride sign up sheets in the lobby for four different styles of riding - from leisurely to spirited.
Should be something for everyone.

I have uploaded a set of revised routes in the Members Only area as I found a couple of dirt roads on the street routes.
Oark and Rt 4 were slightly modified in them.

Stacie and I returned from STAR yesterday hot and tired but grateful for a wonderful week of riding and friendship. And great weather! Out of 1,792 miles we encountered only 3.5 miles of rain!

We want to thank the Bill and Gayla O'brien and Bill and Becky Wing as well as Harry and Beth Hemstreet and all the other volunteers for a great job. It was so good to see so many old friends and meet a bunch of new ones. We are already planning our ride to Vermont

Jeff Dolence and I rode home to Dayton, OH, on Thursday, 735 mi. We had a great time at STAR and plan to be in Vermont next June.

Here's a big Tip of the Helmet to Bill and Gayla O'brien, Bill and Becky Wing, Harry and Beth Hemstreet and all the other volunteers for a great job!

I also tip my hat to the Hemstreets, Wings and Obriens, plus all the volunteers who made it happen.  It was a great STAR 2015.

I had 2556 miles by the time I rolled into my garage with rain only on Day 1 and Day 10 (yesterday).  It was in the 70s yesterday in OH and they're saying we'll only see a high of 66 today.  The heat down south was often oppressive so this is a nice break.  :)

I hope I speak for all the volunteers we enjoyed doing it and getting a chance to show you just a few of the great roads there are to ride in Arkansas.  I'd love to live there but as most know I visit as often as I can get over there.


Please watch your mail box as Harry has sent out the survey.  Please use it for both good and bad(hopefully none) critique of what we did right and what we could do better next year.


I'm already trying to figure out a way to make that one as I've never been that far northeast.

I'll add my thanks even though I couldn't attend. Without the volunteers there is no club, no rallys, no just for events, nothing.

I got home this afternoon after 3530 miles and 11 states. I had a great time at STAR. Like the others, I am grateful to all the volunteers who work to make the event a success. My only complaint is that it has to end.
