2016 NER Ride Calendar


This is an overview of rides posted in the Rides & Runs folder.  Anyone can post and lead a ride.  All are welcome.  There are other "off forum" rides that also occur between folks who have become friends through NER.  It's all about riding, enjoying each others company and making friends along the way.

Note: Although NER is not a club and it does not have rules, everyone is encouraged to read "Suggestions for Group Rides" (click here) as it provides ideas for safe group riding.

We take safe group riding seriously.  If you are not experienced at riding in a group please let the ride leader know when you sign up.  If you are ever uncomfortable on any ride for any reason, talk to the ride leader or drop out of the ride.  Your safety is your responsibility.

Please Note: NER is not an organization. Ride leaders are not trained experts at planning or leading group rides but rather just fellow riders who want to share their love of the road with fellow motorcyclist.  As always, each rider is responsible for themselves and the operation of their motorcycle.  "Ride your own ride" and "ride within your capabilities" are more than sayings.  You are responsible for your safety.

For the peace of mind of your fellow riders, we'd appreciate only non-alcoholic beverages be consumed during NER rides. Thank you.
