Road Captains Ride Plans

Ride Plans for the 2020 Ride Season

  • Due to the impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic and the abbreviated ride season some of the rides may not have an online or downloadable map available.
  • Where applicable (i.e. a ride map is available in the ride details), Ride details, printable/shareable maps and downloadable GPX files (for import into a GPS Receiver or HD Infotainment system) are available by clicking the “Harley Davidson Ride Planer” link below each Ride Map.
  • NOTE: If you are using a web browser the link will take you to the HD Ride Planner website. If you are using your phone or tablet it will open the HD Ride Planner app (if you have it installed on your device) and save the map to your maps list automatically.
  • IMPORTANT: This schedule is subject to change. For the most current information please refer to our RC Ride Calendar, our Facebook Page and the HOG bulletin board at Privateers Harley Davidson.
