RIDE Motorcycle: A Club For One and All

Top, left: The Day Trip patch is a Challenge Patch earned if a member travels 1,000 miles in 24 hours or less. Middle, left: The Chilly Burger patch is hard won. The rider must ride over Michigan’s Mackinaw Bridge and back in December, January or February. Bottom, left: Members earn the Appalachian Triathlon patch for riding Deal’s Gap, the Blue Ridge Parkway and Ohio Route 555 in the same trip. Center: Our current RIDE logo is often seen as a sticker on members’ motorcycles or on T-shirts. Top, right: If members ride from Hell in Lower Michigan to Paradise in the U.P. they are awarded the To Hell & Back patch. Middle, right: This Best Roads patch is earned for riding Tennessee’s Route 129. Or as Dick says, “$2.50 will get you any patch you want.” Bottom, right: This patch accompanies the doctorate and grants the use of “Dr.” with a member’s handle such as Dr. Pilgrim or Dr. Stranger.
