2017 Alley Meet at Fuel Coffee

Sunday October 8th, 8AM to Noon

2017 Alley Meet at Fuel Coffee

It's hard to believe the Alley Shop closed it's doors, but we didn't want this yearly gathering to disappear. So we found an awesome new host in Fuel Coffee Shop, back in 2010, to gather all of the two wheel hooligans and keep this Cincinnati tradition alive!

This is a FREE gathering of bikes, scooters & coffee that has been an annual ritual/tradition since the late 80's, on the morning of the Devil's Staircase Hillclimb out in Oregonia, OH

Fuel Coffee has offered to host this event indefinitely, so let's ride 'em don't hide 'em to The Alley Meet @ Fuel!

The Alley Meet @ Fuel Coffee on the River
2726 Riverside Drive, Cincinnati, OH 45202

See you there!

Re: 2017 Alley Meet at Fuel Coffee

Are there any decent routes to get up to the Hillclimb?

I always drive up because I figure Southwest Ohio is flat/straight/boring.

Re: 2017 Alley Meet at Fuel Coffee

Sunday saw me driving all the way up to an event that was listed as "EVENT RUNS RAIN OR SHINE" right on their website only to arrive and find "EVENT CANCELLED DUE TO RAIN" signs posted and it wasn't even raining at that time (11:45am).

New date is 10/22 to overpay ($20!?) for an event that may/may not run in rain. Fuck 'em. I'm annoyed and the price is too high.

The Oregonia Hill Climb is basically Rabbit Hash with a bigger hill and a smaller river. And, impossible as it sounds, more beer. Watching the bikes attack the hill is actually damn impressive, though. For about an hour. For $20, the show is probably worth it one time. Maybe.

Re: 2017 Alley Meet at Fuel Coffee

I could've sworn the last few times I've been it was only $12 entry or so.

I was trying to take the g/f this year because she's into bikes and what not, but after the bullshit of cancelling due to rain, I doubt I'll ever return.

Re: 2017 Alley Meet at Fuel Coffee

I can't say I blame you. The first time I went (2001?) it was cancelled due to rain for the first time in like 50 years. But at least it was actually raining that day.

I was told the hill was so muddy the dozer couldn't even climb it to scrap the mud off and didn't it start raining around noon for the rest of the day.

Re: 2017 Alley Meet at Fuel Coffee

I'm not a hillclimber but their website states "Event runs rain or shine" so I went with the expectation for that to be true.

Not sure what the weather did up there the rest of the day, I was already south of the river by about 12:30 that day.

Re: 2017 Alley Meet at Fuel Coffee

I could see where that could tick a guy off but if you got to ride and didn't get wet you were a lucky guy.

BTW - does anyone know if the Fuel Coffee get together is going to happen on the rain out date as well?

Hey Bill, this is Pat from olden times (Mid-Ohio, HSTA stuff, Bob/Craig/Bill, etc.). I hope to see you at Fuel on 10/22. Either way, we should do some riding.

Let's try this again! https://www.facebook.com/events/1461312143952299

Alley Meet REDUX, Sunday October 22nd 2017 from 8AM to Noon.

Well, they rescheduled the Devil's Staircase Hillclimb for Sunday, October 22nd and even though a small band of hardy souls met up at Fuel on the 8th, WE ARE CALLING A DO-OVER. The added bonus is that all the "other" cool kids are back from Barber Vintage, so this can be a PROPER end of summer reunion. Thanks to Jason at Fuel Coffee for once again offiering to host us!

This is a FREE gathering of bikes, scooters & coffee that has been an annual ritual/tradition since the late 80's, on the morning of the Devil's Staircase Hillclimb out in Oregonia, OH
