2004 Elk's Lodge Poker Run
June 6th, 2004. Ninety-six bikes participated in the Mount Airy Elk's Lodge annual poker run fund raiser for the Brenner Children's Hospital. The ride through Surry County started at the lodge, left town going north-east on 89, then circled around the southern side of Pilot Mountain, before turning North on a route that followed 77, crossing it several times, and ended back at the lodge on 52. The day was overcast, but dry, and the ride stuck primarily to enjoyable scenic back roads. The stops were at Pilot Mountain, Fairview, and Pine Ridge.
