If vintage motorcycles are your passion, we invite you to join us for the first ever PVGP Motorcycle Countryside Tour. Hosted by the Greater Pittsburgh MG Club, with help from the Ohio Valley BSA Club and Ton up Pittsburgh. The Countryside Tour decided to add a motorcycle part to this already spectacular countryside tour to raise money for the charities of the PVGP. Cost of the event is $40 and includes your lunch at Jamison Farms. Keeping with the same tradition as the sport cars, registration is limited to motorcycles from 1995 and earlier and limited to 35 people (this includes passengers). The tour departs from Fort Ligonier and follows a delightful collection of scenic, twisting, lightly-traveled back roads through Pennsylvania’s beautiful Laurel Highlands. Be advised, this is a RIDING tour and not for the faint of heart. We will cover 75 miles of all back roads at a brisk pace! We will have two groups leave, one that will travel at a more spirited pace (no passengers) and the second for those who want to take it a bit more relaxed (passengers welcomed). The groups will leave from Fort Ligonier on route 30 at approximately 9:30 a.m. and end up at Jamison Farm for lunch, stopping for a break and regrouping half way through the ride. Registration is now open and limited to the first 35 people, so don’t wait too long to sign-up! To keep social distancing as much as possible we have to limit the number of people at the Jamison's farm luncheon.

Lunch at Jamison Farm

On Tour Day, traveling in two groups, to enhance both safety and the riding experience, we will work up a good thirst and an appetite, which will be slaked during our visit to Jamison Farm, on another country road near Crabtree, Pa. Owners John and Sukey Jamison raise lamb, which you will find on the menus of many fine restaurants and they are excited to be our luncheon hosts, this year.
A very talented cook herself, Sukey Jamison has created a line of hand-prepared lamb dishes, which include a Lamb Stew created in collaboration with the late, great Jean-Louis Palladin and Sukey’s award-winning Lamb Pie. If you're not a Lamb eater, veggies are also being made available.

Lodging

The Ramada Inn of Ligonier will be our host hotel for this years event. A block of 10 rooms (2 to 4 occupancy) has been blocked for participants. Mention the PVGP Countryside Motorcycle Tour, when you call for reservations. A good night’s rest at the Inn will help avoid the hassle of having to get up in the pre-dawn hours and do the “forced march” out to Ligonier, for the 9:30 A.M. start of the tour. Other hotel options are further down Route 30 towards the Turnpike. Call the Ramada (724-238-9545) and reserve your room for Friday night.

I know it says "older bikes," however my buddy is doing registration and he can make "creative decisions." So please don't let a lack of an older machine discourage you from coming out and riding.

Thank you everybody that showed up. We are thinking of doing another ride this Fall. Jamison's farm is amazing. See you at the Rally.
