2020 Ride Cancelled

We have decided to not have the bike ride this year on June 19-20, 2020. We cannot predict when the covid-19 outbreak will be over and we worry that June is too early to bring 1,000 people back together from all over the US.

If you have already signed up for the ride, you will receive an email soon with options.

The 2021 ride will be held June 19, 2021. Thank you for your understanding. 

Note: Your ticket includes the Saturday ride as well.

This year there are 2 options for Friday night. The Friday Night Amish dinner ride and drive are limited to riders who are also riding on Saturday. If you’ve never had an authentic Amish threshers meal, you’ll want to try and get on the list. You’ll partake in a hardy meal that’ll put “meat on your bones” and a smile on your face.

  1. Ride  10 miles in 1 hour to The Carriage House
  2. Drive to Yoder’s Homestyle Cooking.

HOW MUCH: $35 + $35 for the Saturday ride if you register before May 20.

  1. RIDE: You’ll take a 10-mile bike ride to an Amish home starting at Woodlawn Church.
    1. Friday Night Ride Start Location
      1. Meet at Woodlawn Church, 62861 Country Road 41, Goshen, IN 46528
      2. We are not starting at Elkhart County Fairgrounds
    2. WHEN: Friday, June 19, 2020, arrive between 4:30 and 4:45 pm at Woodlawn Church. (You will be directed to park on the south side of the Church).  We will leave for the dinner by 5 pm.
  2. DRIVE or SELF-GUIDED RIDE: We are offering an option to drive to Yoder’s Homestyle Cooking. For this option, you’ll need to find your way to Yoder’s, 10525 W 325 N, Shipshewana, IN 46565 by 5:55 pm EDT. This is great for those who might struggle riding 10 mph for an hour or who might not be able to get in town soon enough to do the Friday night ride.  You are welcome to ride bike, but you are on your own to find Yoder’s Homestyle Cooking. Be aware and take care, some of the roads have gravel.
    1. WHEN: Friday, June 19, 2020, arrive by 5:55 pm EDT
    2. WHERE: Yoder’s Homestyle Cooking, 10525 W 325 N, Shipshewana, IN 46565



  • Riders will meet at Woodlawn Church, 62861 Country Road 41, Goshen, IN 46528.
  • The 10-mile route to dinner is a fairly flat 10 miles and should take about an hour. You will receive a map of the route when you check in at Woodlawn Church. There is no advantage in racing to the dinner, since we will not start dinner until all riders have arrived.
  • A support vehicle will follow the riders.
  • Each rider will receive a map to the meal location. There are no road markings.
  • We’ll park our bikes in the pasture next to the home.
  • The meals are served family style, meaning they will bring in out the food in serving bowls or on platters.  You take a serving and pass the plate.
  • Save room for dessert as you’ll have your choice at the end of the meal.
  • There is no vegan option with this meal. Vegetarians can enjoy the mashed potatoes, vegetables, bread, salad and pie.
  • When we are done eating and have had a few minutes to digest, we’ll thank our hosts. Riders will mount up and bike back to our vehicles.  We will arrive at our staging area before it gets dark.
