Event Organizers & Promoters!
Do you who want to make sure that you get the word out to as many bikers as possible?  You can get your event listed here FREE !!  Check out our SERVICES page for details.


How many times have you picked up a flyer for a cool biker event and then, when the day came, you realized that you CAN'T FIND THE FLYER !!!
It's pretty much impossible to keep track of all the Biker events going on around here but... this page will get you headed in the right direction.  So when you looking for something fun to do like Bike Runs, Cruise Nights, Swap Meets, Bike Shows, Blues Fests, Tattoo Shows, etc., THIS is the place to look!  

This page is contains THREE SECTIONS: 
Biker Events
Biker Cruise Nights

Biker Event Calendars

The Biker Events and Biker Cruise Nights sections contain detailed information on specific biker events and weekly cruises for the Buffalo & Western NY area.  

The Biker Event Calendars section was created because selected organizations (The Hog Farm, ABATE, BikerSource, etc.) already do such a GREAT job putting together Event Calendars.  So, the folks here at Cyberspokes decided... Why reinvent the wheel?  Instead, let's pool all of these resources together into ONE CENTRAL RESOURCE!  Hence this section was born.  Rather than listing the event calendars alphabetically, we decided to list them in order of completeness for the Western New York area.  Our opinion of course. 

Remember, you can check our New Updates page for new listings which did not yet get listed below.  Also, for more National events take a look at our SEARCH or CONTENTS pages.  

Don't forget to pick up your copy of the Mercy Flight "WNY Motorcycles 2003 Event Calendar" We pray we never need the services of Mercy Flight, but when called upon they help save our lives. For just a $10 donation, you can own the calendar made just for Western New York motorcyclists and help keep Mercy Flight flying! Available at The Hog Farm, Jim's Custom Cycle, V-Twin Cycles, Gowanda Harley, Stan's HD, Don Georges, Wyoming HOG, Niagara HOG, ABATE of Buffalo/Erie, Regents Riders, Ruben Brown & BuffaloBills.com, and Motorcycles for Mercy Flight. http://www.mercyflight.org/ Also, the 2003 Cyberspokes Food Bank Run promises to be bigger and better than ever! Save the date Sat. April 26, 2003! http://cyberspokes.tripod.com/Foodbank.htm

"Happy B-day To Me Run"

bullet"Dave O's Happy Birthday to Me Run" - Saturday June 15, 2002
-Alright, this isn't by any means an official run but it's just a poor excuse for me to try to get a few of my friends to come out and play with me for my b-day.  My mom used to tie a porkchop around my neck so the dog would play with me, but I thought this might be a bit more fun.  My b-day is actually Sunday but we're meeting at noon sharp by our house at 5380 Scranton Road, Hamburg NY and then we'll "make like a fetus and head-out" to the Blues Cruise at the Rose Garden (see above).  Not that I expect anyone to actually show up, but if you do and our lawn and driveway are filled already, you could park in the Scranton Volunteer Fire Co. lot directly across from our driveway.  I didn't actually get permission but I figure our yearly donation to them should double as a parking fee.  Ya think?  If you need directions to our house, you can give me a buzz at 716-649-0797.  Ride Free! - Dave O.
