Return to the Bull Pen
After the roller coaster of uncertainty we’ve been dealing with for a few years, anything that happened pre-pandemic now seems like the distant past. Things have changed quite drastically since our first annual Summer RideOut in 2018, but one thing remains certain–if the weather cooperates, you can always expect a good turnout at a motorcycle gathering.
This year’s event on Sunday, July 10, was our first in over two years, carrying on the tradition of bringing together hundreds of motorcycles with live music, barbeque, and booze at the Bull Pen Rustic Inn. Located in the small town of Avella, Pennsylvania, the Bull Pen is just far enough from the city to give riders a choice of different routes through the beautiful Western PA countryside but still close enough to make it home before sundown. With both indoor and outdoor bars, entertainment from the band Black Dog Hollow, and enough parking to fit everyone that showed up, the location was super chill and even worked as a place to stop and relax for those who organized long Sunday rides throughout the tri-state region. The Summer RideOut has also served as a way for us to connect with enthusiasts and find interesting custom builds for our magazine features and Glory Daze motorcycle show.
As always, we truly appreciate everyone who made it out this year and helped spread the word about the event. We plan to return again next year with a couple of fun additions. For those interested in joining or organizing a group ride to Avella for the day, stay tuned for the date announcement in early 2023.
