Saturday, June 8th we had a successful and very fun full day at our charity run. The weather could not have been any better for all of the riders. Well over 60 riders showed up to cruise the day away in the name of charity, and, with a police escort all the way to the bridge, how can it get any better. After the ride, many people hung around and enjoyed the delicious barbecue from the various vendors and listened to the wonderful music.
