Event: Queen City Mods & Rockers Rally June 2nd

Copyright © Carrie Wilson

Mark your calendars now for the first annual Queen City Mods & Rockers Rally in Cincinnati. This is a MvR style rally for motorcycles and scooters on Saturday June 2nd with a pre-party at C&D bar on Thursday  and a Friday night Meetup in Over The Rhine at MOTR pub.  Don’t let the fun photo to the left scare you, this is a family friendly ride but a little Scooters versus Motorcyclist humor is appropriate. So gas up your ride and come join us for some fun in the sun!

Full details at the event web site: http://queencitymodsvsrockers.com/

The event includes a Saturday ride that starts at Fuel Coffee on Riverside with coffee and light food. The ride has a scooter route and a motorcycle route that meets up in Rabbit Hash Kentucky for a short break with refreshments.

Queen City Mods & Rockers RallyIt returns with a trip across the Anderson Ferry boat on the Ohio river (alternate route available) and ends in the Northside neighborhood for food, bands, beer, vendors, art, games and some good socializing with like minded two wheelers.


We are actively seeking Sponsors for this event.  Please contact Tim Burke at 513-321-1771 during business hours to learn more about how to reach this diverse audience of motorcycle enthusiasts that include doctors, lawyers, artists, musicians, students and professionals of all ages (really).


Queen City Mods & Rockers Rally

What: A three -day event to build community around the regional motorcycle & scooter enthusiasts.  Organized by the Cincinnati Café Racers, a local café motorcycle and vintage enthusiast group, along with assistance from several local scooter clubs.  Bring out your most interesting ride and meet fellow riders, make new friends and hear some great local music.  A portion of the proceeds go to benefit the Change of Heart Support Group (501.3c) charity.
