Why Hueston Woods Park as a mid-point stop?

With the success of the Hero's Ride has also come tragedy for our  motorcycle family. On September 14, 2008, the 4th Annual Hero's Ride  pulled out of the Fairfield VFW Hall on a path for Hueston Woods Park  and a final stop at the Fairfield Village Green. As the ride made it's  way to Hueston Woods winds started to pick up and by the time the ride  make it to the beach area there were substantial wind gusts - later we  would find out that Hurricane Ike was leaving a path of destruction  through the Ohio Valley.

As the remaining riders were lead out of  the park the high winds caused a large tree to fall on one of the ride  "sweeps" for the event. Stephanie Marie and Thomas James Bobinger II  passed away that day - leaving behind family, friends and sadly a young  daughter. We remember them every day that passes - the tree that played a  part in this tragedy is located between the beach and the golf course  road exit (after passing the golf course we will turn left onto Main  Loop Rd., the tree will be on your left shortly after turning).

A plaque has been placed on the tree as a sign to all who pass that they will never be forgotten.
