MILWAUKEE – (March 5, 2008) On Monday, June 30, 2008, Harley Owners Group (H.O.G.) members around the world will band together in a singular challenge, to log a cumulative one million riding miles by the day's end.
Whether they ride around the block or all day, solo or as part of a group, wherever in the world they ride, H.O.G. members participating in Million Mile Monday will ride together in a unique opportunity to make club history.
"Ride to work, at lunch, or all day long. Ride alone, with friends, or with your chapter," said Mike Keefe, V.P. of the Harley Owners Group. "Just get out, ride and have fun."
Million Mile Monday, which H.O.G. hopes to make an annual event on the last Monday of June, is open to all H.O.G. members-- riders or passengers.
