For 2009, we are currently sponsoring three challenge rides for our members -- the North Carolina County Courthouse Ride Challenge Ride, the International City Ride Challenge, and our latest challenge ride -- the North Carolina State Park Challenge Ride.
The North Carolina County Courthouse Challenge Ride involves visiting as many of of the county courthouses in North Carolina's 100 counties as possible and taking a picture of your motorcycle with the county courthouse in the same picture. You can visit these county courthouse locations whenever you like, and in whatever order you like.
The International City Challenge Ride involves riding around the world, so to speak. This ride challenge involves visiting “International Cities” in North and South Carolina – these are cities or towns that have an “international” sister town with the same name.
The North Carolina State Park Challenge Ride involves visiting each of the thirty-four North Carolina State Parks and take a photo of your motorcycle with the State Park sign. For extra credit, you can also visit each of the four State Recreational Areas.
The North Carolina Four Corners Challenge Ride involves riding to the four corners of the state. The Four Corners Challenge Ride will run from April 1st until October 10th, 2010. Contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org if you would like information (four Adobe Acrobat PDF files) on the four corners locations sent to you via email. Currently, we have one finisher -- Jerry McCumby!
The North Carolina State Historic Site Challenge Ride takes participants to all each of the 27 North Carolina Historic Sites. You can obtain a brochure about the state historic sites by visiting one of the local historic sites -- in our area, these include the Battleship North Carolina, Fort Fisher, and Brunswick Town/Fort Anderson.
More information about each of these challenge rides is available on their web pages. Refer any questions you may have regarding these Challenge Rides to email@example.com.
