Ohio Bike Week

  I have been fortunate enough to have gone to many Ohio Bike Weeks. Each year they get better and better. Ground zero for OBW is downtown Sandusky, Ohio. Sandusky blocks all the streets off and welcomes bikers wholeheartedly. There is also some really scenic rides The Coastal Trail along the coast of Lake Erie or ferry over one of the islands off shore just to name a few. Every year I participate in The Jesse James Dupree Pancreatic Cancer ride in which the frontman for Jackyl leads ever year. It begins at Mad River Harley in Sandusky on Thursday during Ohio Bike Week. I will be riding it again next year and hope you plan on attending it next year. Let's bring all our friends to ride with us and help raise money for a good cause.

   Sandusky is also the home of Cedar Point, the Roller Coaster Capital of the World. I try and visit that too while I am up there. With a fist full of world records, their coasters will thrill even the biggest adrenaline junkies.
  This year the rally was made even better by the presence of Progressive Insurance. To start with, they host the main stage that saw such bands as Jackyl, Colt Ford and Buckcherry just to name a few. Also present was Flo's Chop Shop where attendees can get beards and mustaches trimmed from professional barbers.  People can get manicures and everyone can get boot shines. Did I mention all this is absolutely free? And Progressive didn't stop there. They also had an enclosed parking garage for everyone to park at that included 24 hour security in case you partook in the festivities too hard and wanted to leave your bike over night. One morning they even had an all inclusive breakfast buffet for the first 500 participants. They do all this extra service free just to demonstrate that they believe that is what a good insurance provider does..
  Sandusky also has the food covered. With it's many local restaurants highlighting things like lake perch and walleye, they also have every kind of food vendors on the street with things like deep fried cheese curds, award winning BBQ and my favorite, chicken on a stick.

      With all these things and more, you can be sure that I will be back next year. I'm looking forward to doing The Bikes, Blues and BBQ rally in Fayetteville, Arkansas and attending all the good things that Progressive has planned there as well. Hope you will be there to enjoy it with me!
