Riding into History™ – Who Are We?

Riding into History™ (RIH) is a world class Vintage Motorcycle Concours d’Elegance. Since its inception, Riding Into History has been held at the World Golf Village near St. Augustine, Florida. It has received widespread coverage and articles have been written about it all over the world. It was also nationally featured on the Speed Channel.  This competition attracts over 300 antique and vintage motorcycles each year.  Collectors from all over America bring their motorcycles to the show, and they are displayed around the lake which forms the centerpiece of the World Golf Village.  There are numerous exhibitors at the Concours, as well as representatives from several motorcycle clubs.  RIH is a 501(c)3 organization that has contributed $500,000 to charities. Our choice of charity is K9s for Warriors. There is no paid staff, and all duties are performed by volunteers.

Cindy McLean is joining us as chairman for the first time for our 23rd year of Riding into History. Cindy has actively volunteered  in various capacities since 2004 and has been managing our website and digital communications since 2010. She began riding motorcycles at the age of 49, becoming a Motorcycle Safety Foundation Rider Coach in 2007, later taking up vintage motorcycle racing with her husband Alex in the American Historic Racing Motorcycle Association (AHRMA) in 2014.

A self-employed digital marketing specialist, including website design, management and everything involved, in 2018, she was retained by AHRMA to manage their website and digital presence.  This has grown into more than a full time commitment as the Communications Director immersing her in all things vintage motorcycling.

Cindy’s first year as the Riding into History Committee Chairman will give her the opportunity to promote what is near and dear, Competition Motorcycles.
