NE Dog Days Weekend Staunton [VA]

Dog Days are back, this year in Staunton VA. This is the perfect launching pad for some of the best riding anywhere. The Blue Ridge Parkway is 17 miles from the hotel and several GREAT routes into WV start or are very close to Staunton. There are many local wineries and breweries for after hours. It is only a 3 block walk to the restored downtown area where there are many choices for food and beverages. Bring a friend and bring your swimsuit as the Motel has a great pool!

We initially set up a rally fee to have a planned Pizza & Wing Party Saturday Night at the motel. Feedback on this has been unenthusiastic. A decision was made to set a $0 fee and make this a "down & dirty" no-frills weekend activity. Come to hang out and ride. 

Activity Headquarters: Howard Johnson Express, 268 N. Central Ave. Staunton, Va. 24401 540.886.5330

A limited block of rooms will be held until 6/30/2016 at a reduced price - book early. Nightly room rate is $61.00+tax. Included with your hotel stay is a continental breakfast, off street parking and a large outdoor pool. You must call the Motel direct to book your room.

Camping: Make your own camping arrangements. There is a local KOA 9 miles away from the hotel, that will gladly accommodate those of us who would rather camp.484 Walnut Hills Road Staunton, VA 540.337.3920

Adult beverages are served and there is a variety of music types week to week. The 2016 calendar has not been posted as of yet, but if you make it into town on Thursday, it''s well worth the $2 donation to get in.
