The trademark sound of Harley-Davidsons and other motorcycles will reverberate off buildings from Orrick to Richmond and then on to Carrollton Sunday during the 3rd Annual Ride with Pride.
Organized by Competitive Edge Gunworks of Bogard, Mo., the event is a benefit for the Circle of F.A.I.T.H., a non-denominational organization that provides in-county assistance to the needy for food, heat bills and Christmas presents for children. It is also a tribute to families of members of the military, who will be honored at a banquet along with special guests Mike and Cassandra Peck, decorated trainers of U.S. Navy Seals.
Riders – cars and trucks are welcome, too – will gather in Orrick at the Crossroads convenience store on Highway 210. Day-of-the-ride registration begins at 10:30 a.m., with the first rider leaving the station at 12:30 p.m. The banquet begins at 2 p.m. and community members can attend even if they’re not part of the ride.
Entry fee is $25 for a motorcycle rider, $15 for passengers or $40 for a car load of participants. Tickets are available at Hometown Pizza in Richmond. Participants are asked to bring a non-perishable food item.
The caravan will travel from Orrick to Richmond, where it will circle the courthouse square. The bikes and other vehicles will continue to Carrollton, circle the square and then proceed to the Carrollton Community Center, 710 Harvest Hills Dr., for the banquet, a silent auction, games and music by The Krazy Kats.
Proceeds will benefit F.A.I.T.H. – Friends/Family Acting Intelligently to Help. The organization provides assistance directly to the needy in local communities.
