Blueridge Ural Rider's Party (BURP)

Post by tubarick » Sat May 08, 2021 11:05 am

I will host the Blueridge Ural Rider’s Party (BURP) on July 9 – 11, 2021 at the Willville Motorcycle Camp, http://www.willvillebikecamp.com/ just off US Hwy 58, Meadows of Dan, Virginia.

Due to a short planning window, this will be a less elaborate Rally than our Past event, so I will emphasize long rides on the wonderful, winding roads around Meadows of Dan, Virginia.

Routes may include the following:

http://www.willvillebikecamp.com/rides. ... Vof_09TpJs

Tentative Schedule: Friday night Dinner at El Charro Mexican Grill in Floyd, VA.

Saturday morning ride TBD with a stop at a local restaurant TBD.

Saturday afternoon ride down BRP, south on VA 8, VA 40 to Ferrum (Ooh! There’s a Dairy Queen there!) and return via US 58.

Saturday night, depending on attendance and participation, hot dog cookout under the Pavilion – OR local restaurant TBD.

Sunday morning: mass stampede to the Poor Farmer’s Market, MOD for biscuits and coffee. (Let’s see how many Urals will fit in their parking lot!)

Pump up your tires, tighten the hack bolts, bring your favorite Monkey and come on down…

Sounds great, appreciate you taking this on. Unfortunately the Red Wing Roots Festival Mt. Solon is our Ural camping destination that weekend, IF it is not canceled again this year.

I might not have a running Ural by then, but regardless, I'm in.

Hell, none of us may have a running ural by then. HA

Will be up there the third week that month with Tim and Bill due to previous commitments with all three of us so we won’t be able to attend. The community appreciates you taking this on I am sure. 👍👍

BURP UPDATE: I'm in contact with a local who offered to lead us on the Saturday morning ride if she's in town. I have developed two routes for gravel roads for a Saturday afternoon ride. One of these can easily end at the Chateau Morrisette Winery.

Chateau Morrisette produces my favorite Virginia wines. I'm particularly fond of Our Dog Blue. I'd love to stop by if we're in the area.

New Host: Blueridge Ural Rider's Party (BURP)

Post by Lokiboy » Tue Jun 15, 2021 9:12 am

I will now be hosting the BURP this year. Rick had to step down for personal reasons.

So, in keeping with Rick’s initial plan the rally will be a low key event. My rides will be on what look to be fun twisting roads. On Friday, a ride down to Mt Airy, NC (basis for Mayberry in the Andy Griffith show) for lunch back to the campground and then maybe over to Galax VA for BBQ.

Saturday - TBD.

it’s a free wheeling affair so it’s really what you’d like to do. You can hang, you can ride, you can visit local highlights. So, come on out and enjoy good company and a fun time.
