2021 Thunder Roads – Buckeye Thunder Run

Thunder Roads Ohio (TRO) is proud to present the 2021 BUCKEYE THUNDER RUN – a state-wide, summer-long riding challenge with YEAR-ROUND opportunities to WIN by hitting the coolest riding destinations and events across Ohio!  This is a riding challenge like no-other and features great prizes every month that you earn simply by getting out to ride and discovering new stops ALL ACROSS OHIO and the MIDWEST!


Checking in at Ride Stops!  You check-in at designated RIDE STOPS with your phone and through FACEBOOK, INSTAGRAM, and TWITTER.  Simply check in at the location using Facebook and then post a picture of yourself there.  You can include your card if convenient.  Include #THUNDERRUN in your comments or tag Thunder Roads Ohio in the post.  If you’re not on Facebook, you can take a picture of yourself there with your ride card or motorcycle and email it to BuckeyeThunderRun@gmail.com

Checking in at TRO Tour Stops!  Throughout the year, the TRO ROAD CREW will be hitting rides, rallies, bike shows, and various events throughout the state – and beyond!  In some cases the CREW will be attending national rallies and other events throughout the Midwest – including Michigan and Pennsylvania motorcycle events.  Anywhere the TRO CREW is at – instantly becomes a RIDE STOP!   There is a listing of Tour Stops in the magazine and online each month.  You can sign in on the Ride Stop Clipboard or check in with your smart phone.

“Make Your Own Ride Stop!”  Riders can recommend a RIDE STOP by simply “Checking-In” through their facebook account with the hashtag #THUNDERRUN.  Within the post, BTR Riders should say that they are “Making this their Ride Stop” and that we should also.  You can also include why – “They have the BEST Bike Night!” or “BEST BURGERS IN OHIO!” Special prizes each month are allocated for these check-in’s and the stop itself can win – if applicable.  Selected “MAKE YOUR OWN RIDE STOP’s” have a chance to win up to $5,000 in prizes – and each posting increases their chances to win!  In such cases, the person(s) nominating the Stop with their check-in is also eligible for additional prizes as well.  

How do you Start? (It’s really simple!) 

  1. Get your Ohio Ride Card!  (Online at ThunderRoadsOhio.com, at an Event, or at some Ride Stops!)  You can check in without a Card – using Facebook.
  2. Like Thunder Roads Ohio on Facebook.  
  3. Get the list of stops each month from your Thunder Roads Magazine, the website (ThunderRoadsOhio.com), or Facebook.
  4. Ride out to these stops and show them your card or check in with the  #THUNDERRUN Hashtag on social media – Facebook, Instagram, or Twitter.
  5. And then you win cool prizes, including cold hard CASH!

You can request a Ride Card through our website!

You can now go online and register for your Thunder Run Ride Card through our website – www.ThunderRoadsOhio.com.  Simply head to the TRO Online Store and order your Ride Card.  There is a $5 convenience fee for this option – but ALL PROCEEDS are applied to our Warrior Fund, sponsoring charitable motorcycle events and organizations across Ohio.  Once you have received your OHIO RIDE CARD, you will not be asked to provide personal information or emails at any location for check-in.  You simply enter your ride card number!

PLEASE NOTE – You can still use your previous Ride Cards.  All Ride Card registrations carry over, however you are welcome to pick up a new shiny one if you’d like.  

As we mentioned, this is a dynamic event – intended to be tweaked and developed over time.  If you have ideas, suggestions, or concerns – please don’t hesitate to let us know.  You can email us at BuckeyeThunderRun@gmail.com
