After a few months off, I’m gearing up along with our TRO readers for an amazing riding season!
The clock has sprung forward and the sunlight wants to fall upon our shoulders on the open roads.
In addition to my love of riding, I have certainly enjoyed expanding my wardrobe when it comes to riding apparel. I admit, I enjoy shopping, but when I first started riding in 2017, I didn’t have a stitch of riding apparel. Most of what I wore was geared toward my tour business, so it wasn’t suitable to wear for riding. When I found “the style” that suited my interests, it didn’t take long to acquire “the look.” The feel and smell of leather vests, chaps, jackets and gloves soon took on an appeal. The next step was to add my personal expressions on my vest in the form of patches. What fun!
The 2019 calendar is filling up with exciting ride destinations both near and far. As I traveled from coast to coast last year, all I could imagine was returning again soon to some awesome locations and spending more time exploring our beautiful country. Recently, I visited a couple of our own local businesses in Medina and Wayne County that have a lot to offer the biker enthusiast.
3 Mom’s Stitchin’ ~ Located on SR 3 is easy to find. Proprietors, Bonnie Ramsyer and Susie Campbell met 9 years ago. For the past 8 years they have been attending road shows, bike nights and motorcycle conventions promoting their products. As I walked into their store, I was immediately impressed with the variety of patches ranging from animals to yoga, occupations, military, ladies, one-liners and so much more! They really have thought of everything and everyone! Looking for accessories? They have a large variety of vest chains, tool bags, windshield bags, belt key chains, handmade belts, key paddles, fringies, drip covers and concho belts.
Need zipper repairs? Bring it in along with your patches and they will sew them on while you wait.
You can find Bonnie, Susie and their staff attending local bike shows, events and Ohio Bike Week in Sandusky. Mention Thunder Roads Ohio and receive 10% off your purchase.
Geno’s 2.0 ~ Under new ownership, Geno’s 2.0 biker bar has revamped the interior décor with vibrant orange table tops and have added new items to their salad, sub, sandwich, and wings menu. Located at 7091 Lafayette Road in Medina, they are known as Medina’s only old school biker bar. Find and follow their events on Facebook.
Hope you all can get out on the road soon!
“Don’t Count the Wheels, just enjoy the ride.”
