get­ting together to ride, eat and gen­er­ally en­joy each other’s com­pany. We gen­er­ally ride twice a month in North­west Ge­or­gia and North­east Alabama area and most rides are less than 500 miles. We meet ev­ery month for din­ner to dis­cuss up­com­ing rides. We are a group of all makes and mod­els of bikes. It’s not what you ride, it’s that you ride. We have no dues and no com­mit­ments. All we ask is that our mem­bers help sup­port our chap­ter by be­ing ac­tively in­volved in our rides and events. We ask that ev­ery­one re­mem­ber that safety is paramount; ride safely and live to ride an­other day. We are a fam­ily-ori­ented rid­ing group and do not per­mit any al­co­hol or drugs at any chap­ter ride. If you like to ride, we would like to have you ride with us. We look for­ward to rid­ing with you. Jon Ben­son, Chap­ter Leader; Crank.scrc002@ya­ or 678-901-7445.
