Monday 15th December 1930
The Meteor Motorcycle Club was founded in Glendora, New Jersey, US. In 1934 the Meteor’s moved into a clubhouse on the Black Horse Turnpike in Bellmawr, New Jersey. On November 28, 1934 they held their first official AMA “Night Run”, or better known as the Sandy Lane Enduro. The Sandy Lane Enduro was started because two Meteor members were big off-road freaks. They had been reading, dreaming about the Jack Pine Gypsy (AMA) runs. They were a two-day, 500-mile National Championship Endurance Run promoted by the Lansing Motorcycle Club of Lansing, Michigan. At that time there were no endurance runs in the East. So the Meteor’s decided to bring the Jack Pine, or a reasonable facsimile there of, to South Jersey.
