I can't wait for this ride.

Anyhow, here's the info I have so far:

 

Starting off at 8am from the Hampton Inn in Chicopee MA

 

Ending Leg 1 at the Budget Inn in Stroudsburg PA

 

Hotel Information:

June 20th 2015

Hampton Inn

600 Memorial Drive

Chicopee MA

413 593 1500

Event ID#301672

VMC Group

Must Identify themselves as members of the Victory Motorcycle Club VMC group.

They are offering us $134.00 plus tax (12.45% at this time) for the evening. Their regular rate is $159.00 plus tax. This is higher than last year by $7.00 but the rooms are decent and free breakfast.

They have 10 rooms set aside at that rate, if we need more I can contact them and we can add more if needed.

Mention to them that you are with the Victory Motorcycle Club for the lower rate. They will also open up extra rooms for us if we need them at the $79.00 rate.

Also there is parking for the bikes under the overhang by the rooms.

I will probably come up from Virginia on Sunday and meet you at the hotel to ride the next 2 legs. I like to park the bike and walk to food and adult beverages at the end of a days ride, google maps shows a bar/grill next door, Roasted Tomato, is that correct? - Thanks - Gene

I have been doing research and cannot find any info on the Victory Highway route from Stroudsburg,PA south to NJ. I intend to follow the route that was followed after the late 20s, namely the National Road, US40, once I get down to NJ and ending leg 2 at Catonsville, MD. Any help from others would be appreciated. Thanks - Gene

Matt, will you have the stop at Barkhamstead Reservoir again? Hyde Park Brewery is a good lunch spot. Been there a few times on VMC rides.

Here's the list of stops for leg 1 of the V2V

 

Start at the Hampton Inn in Chicopee, kickstands up at 8am

Approximately 9am 1st stop Barkhamstead Dam, 14 Saville Dam Rd Barkhamstead CT

Depart around 9:15am for 2nd stop which is Amenia Mart 5330 US 44 Amenia NY. Figure we'll get there arounx 10:15am, there is fuel so figure a 20 minute break here. Take off around 10:35am and ride to Hyde Park Brewing Company, 4076 Albany Post Rd Hyde Park NY. We'll arrive around 11:15-11:30am and have lunch. Figure we hit the road from here around 12:45pm, and ride to the Hawk's Nest Rt 97 Deerpark NY. Hang out until 2:45-3pm, then head to Budget Inn 320 Greentree Dr East Stroudsburg PA arrive around 4-4:30pm, where the baton pass will take place.

 

FYI I'm not staying overnight, I'm riding back home after the baton pass.

 

For those needing info on the ride back, take 80E to 209N to 84E. There is a toll to cross the Hudson on the Eastbound side, so bring cash or ez pass to pay the toll.

I will try and be at the Hotel by 4PM for the handoff, would be good if we exchanged cell numbers just in case. - Gene

I had a call today from the Hampton Inn.

This wasn't a bad call but not a good one either.

Because it's 10 days out and no one had reserved a room yet, they are releasing the block of rooms.

They will try to accommodate the VMC members if they call or show up for a room but there is no guarantee of a reduced rate.

HOWDY FOLKS!

 

ARNOLD AND I ARE MAKING OUR PLANS FOR THE SATURDAY KICK OFF PARTY AT OUR HOUSE. IT WILL START AROUND 3:00. WE'LL SUPPLY THE FOOD - IF YOU ARE PLANNING ON "LIQUID REFRESHMENT" OTHER THAN ICE TEA, LEMONADE OR SODA, PLEASE BYOB.

 

IT WOULD BE HELPFUL TO HAVE A HEADCOUNT, SO IF YOU ARE PLANNING ON JOINING US, COULD YOU PLEASE DROP ME EITHER A PM OR RESPOND TO THIS? THANKS!
