COWs Spring Rally – May 20-22, 2022
Come to Hodag country this Spring for our annual rally in Rhinelander. If you don’t know what a HODAG is, you will learn! This year we will be riding in the beautiful northwoods of our fair state! May 20-22 are the dates with an ice cream ride Friday night, a short, medium and long route on Saturday and a breakfast ride on Sunday.
Our host hotel is the Quality Inn in Rhinelander. We have a block of 40 rooms ready for reservations. Just tell them you are a COW! The rates are $89 a night before taxes. The hotel’s phone number is (715) 369-3600.
To receive the special rate your reservation needs to be made via phone NOT online. Also, reservations need to booked by May 2nd to receive the special rate.
For overflow hotel rooms, there is an AmericInn next-door within walking distance, although we have no block there. It may be too chilly for camping in May up there, but camping options are available also! There are a few camping options, and it might be best if you are interested to Google them yourselves and decide with your group which works best after you look at the forecast!
We will have a banquet on Saturday evening also at Quality Inn in the Nicolet room with a cash bar and a catered meal. The cost of the banquet is $30 per person. You can purchase banquet tickets when you join or renew your club membership for 2022.
NOTE: The deadline for banquet registration has passed. If you have not already purchased banquet tickets, you are still welcome to participate in the Spring Rally rides (but not the banquet) as an active club member.
CT’s Deli will be catering the banquet, which is a highly reputable place well-liked by many in the area. It will be buffet style and feature Smoked Pork Ribs, Baked Tuscan Chicken, Lemon Risotto, Green Bean Almandine, Spinach Craison-Almond Salad with Balsamic Vinaigrette, Rolls and Butter. There will be Vegan, Gluten Free and Vegetarian choices as well. As we draw nearer to the event, we’ll touch base with all registered attendees to confirm meal preferences and any dietary restrictions.
The routes are now available on Ride With GPS:
It is a beautiful area — you will not want to miss this one. It’s well worth the car ride to Rhinelander (from any state) to ride on the tandem through the woods, over rivers, and surrounded by lakes.
Get to know Rhinelander and its fun businesses, including the Fun Factory and Dinky Diner, and the Rhinelander Brewery. It’s a perfect place for our group to explore and have fun! Moo.
Rhinelander is putting on Hodag Heritage Days while we are there! Check out this website and see the extra festivities we can be a part of: rhinelanderchamber.com/hodag-heritage.
We are looking forward to a great rally this year!
