Cyberspokes Annual 
"Food Bank Run, Chopper Show & Benefit Party"
The last Saturday of every April

Good people, cool music, hot bikes, and a GREAT TIME. 



This page is contains THREE SECTIONS: 

  1. Biker Events 

  2. Biker Cruise Nights

  3. 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, Hard Tales Mag, ABATE, Gowanda Harley, 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. 

For more National events like Daytona, Sturgis, Laconia, Myrtle Beach, and more take a look at our Cyberspokes Club Events page.  If you can find it there, then hit our SEARCH or CONTENTS pages.

bulletSaturday, May 6th, 2006 - "ABATE Buffalo/Erie Safety & Awareness Run"
Starts at Woodlawn Beach (Rte. 5 at 179 circle). Across from the Ford Plant. Assemble at 10:30, speaker at noon, run to follow and ends at The Furnace 3700 Southwestern Blvd. Orchard Park, NY. Hundreds of motorcycle riders will gather to ride in unity to get the word out that motorcycles are back on the road. Each year as spring arrives so does the return of thousands of motorcycle riders back to the roads of Western New York. Unfortunately, during the winter month's people in cars forget that these riders will be returning to share the road once again. So in hopes of getting the word out ABATE of Buffalo/Erie will hold their 18th annual awareness run. Over the years the population of motorcycle riders has grown tremendously. With this growing number of riders has come the rise in motorcycle accidents and unfortunately fatalities. Did you know that 2/3 of all motorcycle/car accidents are the fault of the automobile driver? Each year across the state of New York May is officially declared Motorcycle Awareness Month. This is in hopes to get the word out to watch for motorcyclists and hopefully decrease the possibility of yet another season full of injuries and fatalities to the motorcycle riders. As a rider there is very little protection when someone in an automobile makes a mistake of any kind. This campaign is to raise awareness to those in cars to please pay attention to the possibility of the motorcycles, being a much smaller and unprotected vehicle, quite possibly being in their blind spot or behind that larger SUV. We will be receiving proclamations from many of our local dignitaries from each of the towns, villages, city and state proclaiming May as motorcycle awareness month, in hopes of saving lives. This is a rain or shine event. ABATE is a not for profit organization standing for American Bikers Aimed Toward Education. Our monies raised during the year are primarily spent on education and safety and getting the word out to the public on how to share the road with a motorcycle. Your support would be greatly appreciated and quite possibly save a life! For info call (716) 627-6715 or (716) 834-2297.
