2016 Solidarity Ride

The 2016 Solidarity Ride will be held on May 15th 2016.    This year we will give a Hand Up to Operation Stand Down Rhode Island. We will be offering 100% of the net proceeds to this amazing bunch of people who work tirelessly helping our Veterans receive what they most definitely have earned.

Last year we had 147 bikes and enjoyed a wonderful 70 mile trip through the byways and farmland of Rhode Island and Connecticut. We were able to raise over $10,000 for Rhode Island Pink Heals which went to support many people and their families dealing with cancer.

We really hope to see you there!!  Check out our facebook page and the website for further details as they are available.

 Registration 10:00 AM  Ride Starts at approx 11:00 AM
