Register now for the seventh annual Pioneer Motorcycle Ride taking place Saturday, Aug. 17. All proceeds from the event will benefit Pioneer Center for Human Services -- McHenry County's most diverse social service agency providing direct care to more than 4,800 individuals each year.
The ride started seven years ago with only five riders. Today, on average, more than 50 riders enjoy the scenic ride through Wisconsin.
This year, the Moose Lodge in Johnsburg, 3535 Richmond Road, will host the starting off point for the ride, providing coffee and doughnuts to begin the day at 8 a.m. All riders should plan to pay the registration fee of $25 per rider or $30 with a passenger the day of the event. Registration begins at 9 a.m. and the ride starts at 10 a.m.
There will be multiple stops along the way with door prizes and a 50/50 raffle. Stops in Wisconsin include Knucklehead's in Eagle, Blue Overalls in Elkhorn and Kip & Deb's in Sharon.
Riders wishing to "do a little extra" are encouraged to collect pledges for their participation from friends and family to help provide additional funding for Pioneer's programs. Ninety-two cents of every dollar raised goes directly to providing services to the community.
