Slimey Crud Motorcycle Gang Cafe Racer Run Set for Oct. 5

Slimey Crud Motorcycle Gang Cafe Racer Run

The first Sunday in October — the 5th – looms less than a month away. And here in Wisconsin, that can mean only one thing: get ready for the fall running of the Slimey Crud Motorcycle Gang Café Racer Run!

With its roots in the ‘70s, the Slimey Crud Cafe Racer Run has grown and continues to flourish on pure enthusiast energy, with no corporate sponsors, no big-budget promotional campaign and word of mouth being the mainstay of getting the word out.

The spring and fall editions of the Slimey Crud Run, which begins in the tiny village of Pine Bluff in Dane County, Wis., on the first Sunday in May and October draw massive crowds of riders from all over the country without so much as an advertisement in a local newspaper.

License plates from as many as five upper Midwestern states and as far away as Texas can be seen on any given run—there have even been some from Canada.

The Run participants themselves decide which route to take to get to the end point in Leland in Sauk county, Wis. Leland features two pubs and a beautiful placid pond. Late comers who didn’t get to Pine Bluff in the morning often show up at Leland in the afternoon and add to the spectacular variety of machinery at the ride’s end.

Done properly, that relatively short ride can end up taking nearly all day and carry riders through some of the most beautiful winding country roads in the nation.
