2014 SULPHUR SPRINGS ANNUAL SLOW RIDE
In October 2014 approximately twenty men and women were present to participate in the annual Sulphur Springs (SS) Cushman Slow Ride. After a couple of hours of meeting, greeting, and discussing individual Cushman past and present projects, we filled our bellies with Hopkins County Stew, cheese, and crackers to strengthen us for the ride. The stew was topped off with Ceil Blount’s wonderful brownies. Eleven hard core Cushman riders decided it was time. We headed out to the back roads to Cooper and Cooper Lake. We had planned to indulge ourselves at Millers Drug Store ( old Ice cream/ Malt shop) in Cooper but had to settle for some Dairy Queen Ice Cream instead. Millers Drug has been in existence since the 30’s. It’s truly a land mark with soda fountain, tables , malts, floats, and Purple Cows. The return trip to SS included a tour of Cooper Lake and different country side landscapes. The route back also included a ride through downtown SS to view the remaining Corvette exhibit that was on display before returning to Coleman Park.
We want to express our thanks and appreciation to all the Cushman riders that came to ride in the SS annual slow ride and especially the eleven hard cores that made the ride. We are looking with expectations to next year at around the same time.

Years ago, the guys had so much fun competing with their scooters pulling the sled.
I received this today from Tommy Goode:
“Richard and I went over to Longview and picked up the sled. We are in the process of re-building it and will have it ready for the State Meet.”

We gathered 8 scooters and rode into Rapid City via Nemo. Through the Black Hills Forest on a smooth but twisting road. Lunch was at a diner after visiting the Motion Unlimitied Museum.
9 scooters left Sturgis this morning heading on a loop ride that included Mt. Rushmore. They saw buffalo, donkey and foal with tourists feeding the donkeys from their cars.
Thanks Richard Kesselus for the photos.

Looking forward to a great week!
