One thought on “February 2014 Events and a sneak peek for the rest of the year

  1. I am part of the CPWHC but live in North Jersey. I have a group of gaited riders up here that have come to the Fairhills event for the past several years. We are looking forward to more events with the fun people of the south. After reviewing the calendar I see several overnight events that we maybe able to attend especially after surviving this winter. Who do I contact in reference to the Eastern Shore Ride? Thanks cyndy
