Rev those engines!!! The Ride is back, and boy have we missed you!

While we’re not 100% back to our ‘regular’ Ride, our faithful Riders & TJO supporters deserve to have a reason to gather again. This year we present the Ride Like an Animal Challenge!

Haven’t heard of a challenge ride before? No problem – think of it as a fun scavenger type event. And it’s not just for motorcycles - anyone can participate. Any mode of transportation works. Instead of our 1 day event, the Ride Challenge goes all summer.

The Ride kicks off July 1st and runs through September 6th, 2022. The event wraps up with a celebration at the Ludlow Elks on Saturday, October 1st from 12:00pm - 3:00pm. Guests will enjoy live music by the band Last Minute, great food, raffles, & more! - entrance and 1 meal ticket included. When you register, you will receive a Ride Challenge packet with everything you need to participate. We have chosen 11 locations to visit around Western MA, a wild card location, and a Super Challenge. Feel free to do 1, a few, or all of the locations. The locations are secret, so you don’t get them until after you register. We may even give you a few hints along the way! There will also be 3, tiered prize categories for participating Riders.

REGISTRATION IS NOW OPEN and runs through August 31st. We will have a prize drawing for a $25 gift card, on August 1st for those who register during the month of July, and a prize drawing on Sept 1st for those who register during the month of August. Winners will be announced on Facebook.
Registration includes: Ride Challenge directions, list of stop locations, an assigned number placard, coupons, and other goodies. Your registration also includes your exclusive Ride Like an Animal t-shirt, and meal ticket that you will receive at the party on October 1st. Each rider in your party must be registered to participate. Children under 12 are free. Don’t want to Ride? That’s ok, you can still register to join us for the party on October 1st. Ride t-shirts available for purchase.

  • Ride Challenge $30 – Includes Challenge packet with lots of goodies, event t-shirt, wrist band, entrance to after party, 1 meal ticket.
  • After Party Only $15 – Includes meal ticket. T-shirts available to buy online separately.
  • Tickets at the door the day of the party are $20 if you decide to join us last minute.
