Welcome to the "Straits Area Road Riders" website. Our Meetings are held on the fourth Sunday of the month at various restaurants in Northern Michigan. Our meeting begins at 1:30 PM but most show up early to have lunch first. Through the non-riding season, we meet once each month for dinner at 7:00pm.  The restaurant locations for both the Sunday Brunch Meetings and the Tuesday dinners are found in the newsletter.

Thank You!

During the riding season we go for a ride every Tuesday evening. Right now we gather in the parking lot of the Burger King in Indian River and depart at 6:00 PM. Our destination may be a restaurant or we may do a brown bag and stop in one of our many beautiful parks in our area and have our meal and socialize. If we feel real adventurous we may stop for ice cream after.

We are listed as being based in Indian River but our chapter covers most of the northern tip of the lower peninsula of Michigan from Mackinaw City southwest to Charlevoix east to Gaylord and southeast to Alpena. So we are a very large chapter geographically but not in numbers.

To give you an idea of how beautiful our area is and the great riding fun you're missing out on, check out this link to the "Indian River Tourist Bureau" at http://www.irtourism.com/
