My name is Amanda Staudemeyer, Chair of Rumble on the Lake, INC and this is my story.  Seven years ago, I purchased my first motorcycle. After my first summer, I had nearly 10,000 miles under my belt and I was hooked. Over the following winter, I wanted to combine my new love of motorcycles with a desire to help my community.

The idea to organize a local motorcycle event surfaced with my friend and colleague
Stacy Meyer.   Our criteria were simple:

  • Give back to the community, with a focus on children
  • Showcase the Cable area as the premier motorcycle destination in the
    Upper Midwest
  • Create the safest and most fun “biggest little ride in America”

The project was underway and in weeks our first event brought 47 motorcycles and $7000, all of which was donated directly to St. Jude’s Children’s Hospital. Six years later, we have grown to over 250+ riders annually and $70,000+ dollars in donations benefiting community organizations.

None of this is possible without the kindness and generosity of our sponsors and support from the riders. Show our sponsors some love and give them your business! It is with great hope and love for this event that we will watch it to continue to grow!
