How best to celebrate the amazing life of a founding member of the LRLR, especially in a year when the headlines are already filled with more plot twists and emotional rollercoaster rides than the worst sophomoric bodice-ripping trash novel? 

With a relay ride of course, all the way across the US. A relay ride featuring (what else??) an oversized kazoo. Just the type of...

Ride Marshal Jon Kirchhofer has come up with an amazing array of dips and climbs, turns and views that are sure to be as breathtaking as they are memorable.

 Welcome to "The Land of Enchantment!" This year's ride is all about New Mexico (plus a little of Arizona, Southern Utah and, grudgingly, Texas). This is the land of Billy the Kid, Georgia O'Keeffe and J.Robert Oppenheimer. It is the state that ushered in the Atomic Age. From sweeping desert vistas to painted mesas and majestic mountains, from the whimsical aliens of Roswell to the caverns of Carlsbad there is something for...

Day 0- Saturday, May 30 we gather in Brentwood, TN near Nashville for the traditional pre-ride briefing, getting to know new riders and meeting up with old friends. As the sun sets we’ll dream of winding curves and spinning wheels.

The traditional pre-ride briefing is important on many levels, as we learn how the group functions on the highways and at gas stops, and hopefully we'll get the full-on instruction of how to properly park for photos from...
