Many of you out there have been asking me (LJ James, CEO Skull Gear Apparel Inc) about the Biker Holiday I am trying to create (hopefully it will catch on all over the USA) on the last Wednesday in June each year. First off I want to say to everyone that this is not the Anti Ride to Work Day as some have suggested, This is in the same spirit as ride to work day!
As those that are a part of the biker community know well, every weekend there are always a bunch of bike events to attend. Many events is not a bad thing because it shows how large and tight the biker community is. But if you are like me sometimes the thought flashes through your head “I just want a day of riding with a few close friends”. When I have this thought I usually take a day off work and take a ride to Montauk Point with a few friends.
As I heard more and more people saying things similar to what I was thinking over the years I though why not create a Biker Holiday? I picked a day that meant a lot to me and now I am going to see if the idea catches on! I would like people to think about this day as kind of a one day Bike Week type Vacation.
I will be running the Long Island NY Route and hope as the years go by others will set up Forget Work Lets Ride Days in their States or area’s. If you are on Long Island you are welcome to meet up and ride with us or if you want to ride in a small group that is cool too. I recommended that everyone take Route 27 as it goes all the way from Queens Nassau border to Montauk. This way anyone who is riding alone can join in with others as they come across them. I would like to see everyone in Montauk at around 1:30PM or sooner for lunch. Those who might choose to ride with me, we will be taking a detour from Rt27 and riding through Sag Harbor then back to Rt 27 as that was the route my late Bro Big Tom showed me on the original Forget Work Lets Ride Day. Sag Harbor is one of the most incredibly beautiful areas to ride on Long Island.
There are many things to do in Montauk NY. After lunch many of us do an annual trip to the top of the Montauk Light House. Everyone is welcome to come with us or they can do their own thing. Do an online search of Montauk to find something you may enjoy.
There is an official After Party on Long Island and everyone is welcome to join us from 7:30pm on at SPEAKEASY – 226 Higbie Lane, West Islip, NY 11795 – There will be food, drinks, music and many biker stories
In case of rain just take the next sunny day off work and Ride !!!
I am your Bro
