Long Range Riding Platoon


The mission of the Combat Veterans Motorcycle Association®(CVMA®) Long Range Riding Platoon (LRRP) is to foster camaraderie within the Association through the member’s attendance at runs outside the borders of their home state as well as events located within the borders of their state that are sanctioned by the State Rep. In addition, it is to encourage members to break through their personal riding barriers and to not be afraid to reach out and put some hard earned miles on their motorcycles. The LRRP is strictly voluntary and is open to all CVMA members who successfully complete the requirements for the wear of the National LRRP patch.

Note: This calendar is for Tennessee and surrounding meetings and sanctioned events.
