VJMC Ride Event
Ride: June 28 2018, Kickstands up at 9:00am

Ride will originate at the Caberfae Ski Resort Lodge in Cadillac, Michigan. VJMC has made arrangements with the Lodge to reserve all rooms for this event. Rooms vary in cost from $79 to $89 ($89 room with balcony). Any rooms not reserved by April 30th will be released. The Days Inn which is about 14 miles from the Resort has been recommended as a hotel for over flow guest lodging. Don’t procrastinate booking your room – there are only 36 rooms at the Lodge.

For renting hotel rooms our guests can now make reservations directly through the Caberfae website. From the main page at WWW.CABERFAEPEAKS.COM, guests will move their mouse onto our Lodging header. A drop-down menu will appear, and guests should click “Reserve Online”. This will direct you to the online reservation page. In the left column under check availability, click on “I have a group #”. This is our group number: VJMC62618 From here the format is fairly straight forward and will walk you through the online hotel reservation process. However, guests can still call the hotel directly to make their reservations over the phone. 231-862-3000

Mailing Address: Caberfae Peaks Resort, 1 Caberfae Lane, Cadillac, MI 49601

On Thursday morning Kyle Bowen (Hagerty) will lead the group to Traverse City, Michigan where we will be the guests of Hagerty. We anticipate kickstands up at 9:00am. Once onsite we will stage and display the bikes in a predetermined location to be viewed by the entire Hagerty team. After the display at the Hagerty Headquarters, VJMC will in a “by invitation only” tour the private collection of Mr. Frank Hagerty and his famed “Hagerty Garage”. We encourage everyone to wear their best VJMC Tee Shirt or Shirt to identify you as a member of VJMC to the Hagerty Team.

To participate in this event you will be required to ride the entire route from Caberfae Ski Resort in Cadillac to Traverse City as part of the VJMC group, ride only a Japanese bike capable of sustained speeds of 55mph-65mph, ensure your bike is in good repair for the approximately 50 mile one way ride and be a VJMC member in good standing. Riders will be required to sign a ride waiver and wear a helmet. All motorcycle tags and insurance must be current. Please show up with a full tank of gas. Due to the anticipated composition of the group of riders there will be a pit stop along the way. Pre-registration for this ride is required in order to have an accurate head count to provide to Hagerty for their preparations for our arrival. A link to that registration will be available on this calendar posting shortly.

Should you prefer a lodging other than the Caberfae Ski Lodge you can choose from a variety of hotel options In Cadillac.

Please keep in mind that you will need to be punctual for assembly and departure. We will leave on schedule. A route map will be provided to each rider the day of the ride.

VJMC will ride on to the Hagerty campus as a group. There is no option for any exceptions.
