Northern Kentucky Fall Drive
September 25 @ 8:30 am - 2:00 pm
As the weather is cooling and driving season starts coming to an end, it’s time for another drive in the country, taking the back roads and twisties of Northern KY on Sept 25th, 8:30am to about 2pm. Like we did in the spring, this will be a casual drive out and back, with a stop for BBQ in the middle and a gathering at the end for those that are interested.
As we’ve asked for top prepare for our other drives, we are requesting pre-registration via this Google form by Sunday, Sept 18th. This is needed to get an accurate count of drivers and guests, and to help figure out drive groups and staffing at the restaurant.
Note: The pre-registration DOES NOT take the place of our driving events waiver and wristbands. All Participants MUST sign the waiver form and get a wristband BEFORE starting the tour.
We’ll start at the Park & Ride on Gloria Terrell Dr. in Wilder, KY, just off the AA Highway, meeting at 8:30am. After we get situated, fueled up, and waivers signed, drivers can start heading out on the route around 9:00am for a 2.5 hour jaunt roughly southeast towards Milford, KY, then west in a loop around Falmouth, KY, stopping at The Smoking Pig Tavern for lunch.
There is a large parking lot around the block across the street from the Tavern that can accommodate everyone (destination noted in the directions). The Smoking Pig has a great selection of pork, chicken and brisket sandwiches, plus snacks, sides, and burgers that should satisfy everyone’s built up hunger. Take a look at the menu!
After lunch, we’ll continue on back towards the Ohio River. You can also feel free to call it a day, cut over to nearby US-27, and head home. Otherwise, we’ll head generally northwest towards Rabbit Hash, KY over the course of 1.5 hours. We’ll end at the famous Rabbit Hash General Store on the banks of the Ohio!
At the end of the fun, feel free to head home, or join us for a tasty beverage. I’m checking if we can get a tasting in at Gunpowder Creek Vineyards across the street, or we can head 10 minutes down the road to the bar at The Knot Marina. Expect to wrap things up around 2pm and allow you to get back to the rest of your Sunday.
A few notes:
- Again, please pre-register by clicking on the link here and filling out the Google Form to indicate you are coming by Sept 18th! We’d like to get an idea of numbers, organize driving groups, and give the restaurant a heads up a week in advance.
- Rather than paper forms, we have implemented an electronic waiver system with the BMW CCA to speed up registration in the morning. All participants MUST sign the e-waiver form and get a wrist band at the Park & Ride BEFORE starting the tour!! Save time and sign the electronic waiver ahead of time! Just click the link below on your phone!
- For those that can’t make the start of the drive, feel free to meet up with us anywhere along the route. Please email me directly so that we know to look for you!
- Driving Directions:
We’ll have some copies of the directions, but please refer to the ones here and use the Google links. These links should show up on your phone and provide turn by turn directions for each half of the route.
