It's that time again, time to get the Icebreaker on your calendar before your riding excursions start to take over your year! I just spoke to Ralph and we have the weekend of April 3rd-5th locked in. For those new to the area, the Icebreaker is an informal gathering in Cave City, KY to kick off the riding year. We will not have any formal routes put together, but the ride to Cave City has multiple options for a great ride in from any location. Some of us will be riding down Friday, riding together Saturday (potentially a set gps route) and rolling home Sunday. But many will ride in on Saturday, have a few adult beverages around the fire, and roll out Sunday. There will hopefully be plenty of riders to hook up with for the weekend that you shouldn’t have to ride alone. Weather is always a crapshoot, we saw snow 2 years ago, and rain last year, but we always power through and adjust routes as needed for a great time! If you would like to join us, please reserve your cabin or campsite at Rock Cabin Camping (http://www.rockcabincamping.com/). You can call Ralph and Lina at 270-773-4740 or email email@example.com. And to spice things up this year, Ralph’s wife will provide dinner on Saturday night at no cost! They have always been gracious hosts, but to provide dinner shows how much they appreciate our business and the fun we bring to the area. Plus I’m sure Ralph will provide plenty of Angry Balls to sip on! Hope to see a great group again this year! And to CMA, here's the official this is not an official ride statement stolen from years ago: Although for the most part everyone who hangs out on this forum already knows this but as a reminder to everyone and for you noobs please be aware that you go on this ride at your own risk. This ride is on public roads and you'll be exposed to all the usual risks you'll find anytime you leave the comfort and safety of the garage. This includes and is not limited to bad drivers, poor road and/or weather conditions, animals running out in front of you, your fellow riders and God only knows what else. If you don't think your abilities are up to this ride don't come along. There's no shame in being honest with yourself and realizing that maybe you're not ready to do a ride like this. All this being said if something unfortunate happens it's between you, the Law and your insurance company. No one going on the ride or involved with creating the suggested route can vouch for your ability or guarantee your safety so don't go whining here if you fall down and go boom. Ride with some common sense, show a little respect for your fellow riders and the locals' home turf we'll be riding through and everything ought to be peachy-keen.
