Weekly dinner rides are held every Wednesday. Sometimes the destination is planned, other times it's a "mystery ride" to dinner. Meet at 6:30 pm in the Sears Outlet parking lot behind McDonald's and Taco Bell at 87th and I-435 in Lenexa, Kansas. Watch your email for updates.

We are always looking for people to step up and lead one of these rides. Contact our Dinner Ride Coordinator to be a leader. It is really easy. You just pick your favorite restaurant, one you have been meaning to try, and ride to it. A bunch of motorcycles will follow you and you get to be a hero to the riders and the restaurant.
