The “Bootlegger Tour Rye’d”, will depart Jefferson at 9:30 am for a tour of the new Templeton Rye facility in Templeton, IA. The tour includes a self-guided walk through of their Templeton museum, production area, bottling line, and tasting room. With the $45 per person registration fee participants will get a special edition t-shirt, coin, and lunch at “The Still” restaurant and bar in downtown Templeton. They will also get the opportunity for Templeton Rye merchandise scavenger hunt at Carroll Cycle Center and to draw a poker hand upon return in Jefferson.

This was the one of most organized and memorable rides we have been on. I know that many hours went into the planning and it paid off BIG time. The bar is now set high for next year and we look forward to the 2016 ride! Thanks

Thanks to your group for all the hours of effort put into the weekend activities. We took the Templeton Rye Tour, and really had a good time. It was fun to learn the history, and of course take a sip of the white lightening!  Well worth the drive from Iowa City!

I ride on MANY motorcycle events. This group of kind and generous people are the BEST in organizing an event. Lots of prizes to hand out, excellent stops, and all for a great cause. See you all next year.

This event was the best ever! Every aspect of the ride was well-planned and executed. We enjoyed participating in something other than a regular poker/bar run and meeting a lot of new friends! We are looking forward to next year's event.
