Where were you?

Benefitting the children at MultiCare Auburn Medical Center
The weather...

didn't stop riders from showing up...

or the Seattle Cossacks from performing...

THE one and only Seattle Cossacks Drill Team and "honorary member" Fuzzy!

or the kids from depending on you!
Let's see if we can't fill these bins up next year!

 You can still drop your Teddy Bears off at the
MultiCare Auburn Medical Center
to all that showed up!

The kids really appreciate knowing you care!

HEY MultiCare...
Thank you for the lunch!
Your staff was fantastic - as usual,
and we truly appreciate all they do
for the children and people in our community!

Say "Goodbye!"

That's right...
time's up!
After several years of maintaining the
Wild Bunch
blog and ride schedule,
it's time to say goodbye.
NO... we are not going away!
We are simply discontinuing the
posting of Wild Bunch and
other group rides / events.

The blog will still be around for posting
ride notes, pictures and other "stuff."

However, with the introduction of social media;
new on-line resources for riders' groups;
websites for finding and posting rides;
sites for advertising rides;
calendars for volunteer and community events;
and, the competing interests of private,
commercial and specialized biker websites...
we've decided it's time to call it quits to
posting of all the rides/events and updates.
And while we heard many of you
appreciate having a blog dedicated to
the interests of non-club motorcycle riders
and the support of community /local events;
as of December 31, 2013,
the posting of ride/event schedules on the
Wild Bunch blog will be discontinued.
We would like to thank all those that
followed our posts,
joined our rides,
sponsored and supported our events,
and - most importantly...
all those that ride!

You can still reach us at -
Until next time -
"Pick a direction...
and ride!"

Cedar Creek Grist Mill - Oct 4, 2013

Woodland, WA

There are some places that
just have to be experienced in person,
because even the best of pictures don't do them justice...

Cedar Creek Grist Mill
is one of those places.

Take the time to ride down to exit 21 of I-5;
have breakfast of lunch at America's Family Diner in Woodland;
and then travel less than 10 minutes -
through some beautiful rural roads, to see

a covered bridge

an authentically restored
WORKING grist mill.

The all volunteer staff are remarkable
and will ensure you leave with a sampling
of fresh milled flour, wheat or corn...
or a little of each!

Take a look at the pictures,
and then take the family to Woodland
for an enjoyable trip back in time!

Parking for motorcycles can be a little tricky -
because of the 17 degree grade in and out of the Mill,
so park in the Care Takers lot!
Look for the cabin on the right,
it's just before you head down the hill
to the covered bridge.

And - when you stop in at America's Family Diner,
please tell
Nate, Kelly, Amanda and the rest of the gang
the Wild Bunch sent you!
