Registration will begin at 10 a.m. on May 4 at CrossRoads Harley-Davidson in Wilkesboro.
Registration fees are $20 for a single rider and $25 for two on a bike.
The 52 mile, police-escorted ride will begin sharply at 1 p.m. and will end at River City Bar & Grill in Lake Norman.
The event will include a live band, food and beverages, silent and live auction and a 50/50 giveaway. At last year’s event, the 50/50 winner won $800.
There will also be a presentation to the “Oldest Living Veteran in the High Country,” at CrossRoads Harley-Davidson followed by more live bands, presentations at River City Bar & Grill in Lake Norman, the ride’s ending location.
This ride’s sole purpose is to aid veterans. In the past this ride has benefited: The Fisher House of NC, Purple Heart Homes, Project Rover, Project Healing Waters, Project Healing Hunt, Welcome Home Vets and several individual veterans in need.
CrossRoads Harley-Davidson’s objective is to help the Combat Veteran Motorcycle Association reach their goal of 700 bikes participating in the ride this year. Be a part of the largest ride in our area, thank our veterans and help our combat wounded by coming out, giving and showing your support.
