2016 sure was a busy year for "DarkHorse!" Between Singlespeed-a-palooza, and all the extra charity events....oh and multiple trips to Newburgh Brewery, the year kinda got away from us.
We are entering our 15th year as DarkHorse, and 8 years in the new building. Planning of events for 2017 are already underway, and as soon as dates are set, we will post information here.
The Ride For Mental Health will take place over a 2 day period, June 24th and June 25th in New Paltz New York. Rides of 25, 50, and 100 miles will be available both days.The proceeds of the ride will be donated to McLean Hospital, a Harvard Medical School affiliate, for education, research and treatment of mental illness, including anxiety, borderline personality disorder, depression, eating disorders, and substance abuse. Information can be found @ www.ericsride.org
We are pleased to announce that we will be hosting the third annual Bx3 (Bikes, Beer, & BBQ) Project Hero road ride (Formerly known as Ride 2 Recovery) with total proceeds to benefit wounded veterans. This year's date is August 20th, with a 9:30 A.M. start. Entry fee is $30.00, and any entrant that raises an extra $100.00 above their entry fee, will receive a special commerative pint glass! Entry fee includes a 30 mile sagged road ride with a free ice cream cone at the mid way point courtesy of Quickway Twin Cone, full BBQ @ Dark Horse HQ, including adult beverages graciously donated by our good friends @ Newburgh Brewing Company. We will have live music supplied by Mike Mack, and of course the Defiant Crew Motor Cycle club will be on hand to take care of traffic control. Every finisher will also receive a custom finisher's medal, with Project Hero merchandise available for purchase the day of the ride.
You can register on line @ projecthero.org closer to the end of February as well as same day on site. More details will be posted as they come available. Pleas help support our vets...they really appreciate it!
