PCB HOG Ride Definitions and Guidelines
Chapter Rides are CLOSED rides that our Road Captains/Tail Gunners have put together for your riding experience and are open to all Chapter Members in good standing. Chapter rides may have one guest per riding member on a ride. The guest MUST fill out and sign the appropriate HOG Release Form. Chapter rides are led by qualified, experienced Road Captains and Tail Gunners.
NO alcohol before and during the ride. Once the ride reaches the destination the ride is over, unless it is a continuation ride (which will be stated before the ride begins).
There are 9 Core Chapter Rides a month plus fill-in/special rides. Core Rides are as follows:
First Saturday of the Month - two rides - (1) Long ride - normally over 60 miles (2) Short ride - about 60 miles
Second Saturday of the Month - two rides after Chapter meeting - (1) Long ride - normally over 60 miles (2) Short ride - about 60 miles
Second Sunday of the Month - Long ride - normally over 60 miles
Second Wednesday of the Month - Evening Ice Cream Ride
Third Sunday of the Month - Long ride - normally over 60 miles
Third Wednesday of the Month - Re-align Your Mind Ride
Last Saturday of the Month - Last Chance Ride
Fill-in - Special Rides - Rides that are not Core rides led by a Road Captain/Tail Gunner
Pop-up rides are not scheduled or posted and not part of the Core rides, just HOGs riding for fun. Three rules (1) no alcohol, (2) a waiver for everyone, and (3) guests can not out-number Chapter members. Miles must be for pleasure, not going to work, running errands, etc. Use Chapter Sign-in Sheets and turn in to the front desk at the dealership or to a Road Captain. Take pictures (no pictures of children), do a little write up and give to John Marshall, Secretary or Frank Byrd, Head Road Captain, to be posted on Facebook. Pop-up rides do not have an assigned Road Captain or Tail Gunner.
