Boonville Will Be Home Base for United Tour Riders Motorcycle Group-8/30/2017

On September 3, members of the United Tour Riders of Delmarva will make Boonville their home base for a week of motorcycling and exploring the area. The United Tour Riders (UTR) is a family oriented group of motorcyclists from Delaware, Maryland, Virginia, Pennsylvania, formed in 1995. The organization promotes safe motorcycling, offers assistance to non-profit organizations, and encourages the well-being of our members. They operate with a volunteer staff of officers and an elected Board of Directors. Membership is open to anyone over the age of 21 who rides a motorcycle. Each month, UTR holds a breakfast meeting, followed by a group ride to a specific location or perhaps just to explore. In addition, there are numerous other rides throughout the month. When the weather turns too cold to ride, the social committee makes sure members have activities that still bring them together on a regular basis, like a soup social and a local rock-n-roll concert. The highlight of the year is their annual September week-long rally, which is in its 23rd year. The group has traveled to many of the states on the east coast -- West Virginia, Kentucky, Pennsylvania, Ohio, Massachusetts, North Carolina, and Virginia. Each year the rally committee picks a location where many members have never visited. They love to explore new places, meet new people, and learn about the area. This year, they picked the eastern part of Lake Ontario and western part of the Adirondacks. The group said they are excited to explore this area and its many interesting places, such as the Erie Canal, the Thousand Islands, Fort Drum and the vistas of the Adirondacks. Each night after their daily excursions, they will meet briefly to exchange thoughts of that day’s ride. The weekly visit will be capped off by a banquet at a local restaurant. The group said they are enthusiastically looking forward to their visit to Boonville.
