The Manomet Mystery Riders was formed in November of 1999 by a family oriented group of motorcycle enthusiasts. They gathered on Sunday mornings for a fun ride to a location determined by the leader of the day, the destination was a "mystery" to most of the riders.
As more and more bikers joined the rides on Sunday two decisions were made: one to form a group organized to promote safety and unity and two to extend the ride days to include Thursday.
The Manomet Mystery Riders was so named for its location and their destinations. The group meets on the first Wednesday of the month at 7:30 p.m. in the John Alden Sportsman Club (JASC), off Beaver Dam Road, in the Manomet section of Plymouth.
Both days’ runs originate from Gellar’s on Route 3A in Manomet. Sunday runs leave around noon and usually have a time of approximately four or five hours. Thursday’s run leave around 7 p.m. and last only a couple of hours. A restaurant or an ice cream shop is usually where the group heads but the ride is as important as the destination.
The bikes made up of all different makes and models can be found traveling the roadways of the South Shore from Quincy to the tip of Cape Cod. Many times we are participating in charitable runs for local needy causes for which we have helped to raise money. We also sponsor our own charitable events such donating meals at Thanksgiving and providing "Christmas" for families who are not able to, complete with our own Santa!
Please join us; weather permitting, on any Sunday or Thursday for a fun time.
