Enjoy exotic and classic street and race cars alongside custom private jets and extraordinary period aircraft, while you enjoy a walk-about feast with samples from some of the area’s finest restaurants! The money raised at this event is dedicated to children’s cancer research.

The goal of The Morgan Adams Foundation is to help ensure that children of the Rocky Mountain Region who are diagnosed with cancer have access to the best possible research and therapeutic options available. Pre-Registration is required for this event -- and we do sell out! 2017 marks our 15th anniversary of the event, so be sure to register early!

Old Bike Ride 15 OBR

Open to all riders of (sufficiently) old motorcycles and all (sufficiently) old motorcycle riders

Welcome to Old Bike Ride Fourteen!

This annual event is a venture between Norton Colorado and Bob Ohman. The purpose of the Old Bike Ride is to encourage people to bring out their old motorcycles and ride them. American, British, Italian, German, Russian, Chinese, motorcycle, scooter, sidecar, concourse original or hideous mongrel, any engine capacity, we do not care as long as it's old enough. The approximately 110-mile route takes us over some of the finest motorcycling roads of the Front Range. The Old Bike Ride is open to anyone riding a motorized vehicle with less than four wheels made in 1980 or earlier. We also honor people who refuse to quit riding just because they got old, so a rider over the age of 75 can ride whatever they want to, dammit.

Except for this Extremely Important Exception:

We are trying to encourage more riders of the female persuasion to get involved in vintage motorcycling. Therefore, for OBR13 and until further notice, women of any age are welcome to participate while riding (not as a passenger) a motorcycle or scooter of any age. Ladies, here's your chance to ride with a choice collection of the crustiest old motorcyclists you could ever imagine! This is not a race. Everyone rides at their own pace and, to quote the old song, "never is heard, a discouraging word" about the mechanical preparation of one's machine or one's rate of forward progress, cornering abilities, or navigational skills (no one could be worse than Jerry Pokorny). We'd really, truly like you to join us.

As in recent runnings of the Old Bike Ride, the special decals commemorating this event will not be issued until the lunch stop.

 

Location and Start Time

The ride will start from the same location in downtown Golden as last year: the large parking lot behind the old Foss Drugstore, one block west of Washington Ave on 13th Street. Maps will be distributed to qualifying riders starting at 8:00 AM. Rider's Meeting at 9:15. The ride will start at 9:30 promptly.

Breakfast, Lunch, and Beer

There are multiple coffee/dining establishments within one block of the parking lot, all of which will be open by 7:30 at the latest on Sunday:

  • Cafe 13, a coffee/pastry shop facing the parking lot at 1301 Arapahoe St.
  • The Table Mountain Grill & Cantina, full-service restaurant around the corner at 1310 Washington St.
  • Higher Grounds, at the corner of Washington St and 14th St, the best coffee shop in the area, a short block away but worth the walk.
  • The Golden Diner, a couple blocks away at 700 12th St., but the best breakfast joint in town.
  • What a surprise, a Starbucks!, at the intersection of Washington and 13th.

The ride may or may not use the same route as OBR13, over Squaw Pass and up the Peak-to-Peak Highway to Nederland for lunch. We are still thinking about that. In any case there will be several dining options so that you can select the establishment that best meets your fiscal and dietary needs. The ride will probably end at one of the brewpubs in Golden. You're responsible for paying for your own food and drink. We expect to arrive back in Golden around 2 PM.

Further Information

Info may be available live at gatherings for First Thursdays at Fort Greene Tavern (321 E. 45th) or at Norton Colorado events or BMAC meetings or anywhere that Bob Ohman is likely to be found. Regular updates and info requests also can be followed on Facebook as OBR14
