On Saturday, June 16, 2018- Biker Rags hosted the start of the 9th Annual Channon & Chris Memorial Ride. Registration was from 9am until 1pm and the ride left Biker Rags at 1:30pm.
We knew it was going to be a great day when volunteers began arriving before 8am. Lori Christian led the organization of the ride events and she did a phenomenal job.
Biker Rags got ready to serve free hot dogs and drinks. (A huge thank you to Becky for volunteering to help Pamo with the food.) We also set up a vintage bike show and had Wild Hogs playing inside the store for folks escaping the heat.
The food and drinks lasted until 1pm with every last morsel consumed (and we had a lot of food!). It was a terrific crowd, everyone had a blast, and it was all for a great cause. THANK YOU everyone for your support of this ride!!! You all are AWESOME!!!
Rusty Wallace was the Grand Marshall and what a pleasure to meet him. He’s a super nice guy and fit right in with the crowd. Also, Chad Campbell, the General Manager from Rusty Wallace Honda, was there helping to organize the day and his personality and charm just shined. A huge THANK YOU to Rusty, Chad and Rusty Wallace Honda for making the 9th Annual Channon & Chris Memorial Ride a huge success.
We would also like to thank Gary and Lori Christian along with the Shepherd’s Riding Club for allowing Biker Rags to be a part of this wonderful event.
Here are photos from the day and a video of the ride leaving Biker Rags at 1:30pm:
