2nd Annual Cycleblend - Happy Hollerpalooza Vintage Show Oct. 22nd !

We are doing it again!! This will be the 2nd Annual Happy Hollerpalooza Vintage Show, sponsored by, the Time Warp Vintage Motorcycle Club, The Time Warp Tea Room, and ThermoCopy.
Last year was the first year we did this, and the response was great!  We had 75 of the coolest vintage bikes you've ever seen, and it was totally FREE to everyone!! No Charge to show, no charge to look! This may very well be the largest Vintage Motorcycle Show in East Tennessee! Our goal this year is 100 Vintage Bikes!

The Bike Show is part of the Happy Hollerpalooza Street Fair, a family oriented street fair, so there will be plenty going on for everyone of every age. The Bike Show will be at the corner of North Central and W.Anderson.
Here are the details:
  • Bikes must be at least 25 years old
  • You can register when you get there
  • You can bring more than one bike.
  • The show is participant judged. You bring a bike, you get to vote for the winner in each class.
  • The classes are the Best: American, British, European, Japanese, and Old Dirt
  • The Public will vote for the "Peoples Choice"  winner
  • Registration starts at 11:00, and ends at 1:30. Trophies will be given out at 4:00 (The street fair goes from 1:00 till 5:00pm) 
  • Oh yeah...your bike must be able to start. Smoking and leaking oil are allowed!
  • There is trailer parking behind the Time Warp Tea Room and on surrounding side streets. Remember, North Central will be closed for the fair, but you can ride your bike in.
Directions, from I-275 in Knoxville take the Baxter Street Exit (1-A). Turn East. Cross the Railroad tracks and take your first left onto Wray. Anderson is your first street on the right, or you can follow Wray St around the corner to Oklahoma and turn Right into the lot behind the Time Warp Tea Room. If you get this close you can't miss it.

14th Annual Southern Woods Rider Fall Ride at Loretta Lynn's Ranch

October 21st through 23rd is the Annual Fall Ride at Loretta Lynn's Ranch. This weekend originated years ago as the fundraiser for the now long gone Volunteer State Trailriders Association (VSTA).  Luckily the torch was picked up by Tom Stotler who formed SWR just to keep this ride going. It has turned into a huge event, and is a great place to take kids and novice riders. This year KTM will be there doing Demo rides. (how cool is that!). Be warned, the campground and area hotels fill up fast. For all of the info go to the SWR Website
