Muskegon, MI – On the morning of July 22, 2018, nearly 200 bikers are expected to gather for the annual Patriot Ride to increase awareness and raise funds for domestic violence and sexual assault survivors. “Freedom…The Patriot Ride embodies what our society values in highest regard. Its name recognizes the sacrifices the patriots of this country made to achieve it. Working side by side with everyone to bring this event to the streets of our county has been a wonderful experience for me. With appreciation for our way of life, with honor for the sacrifices of our veterans and with gratitude for the peace brought to our lives; we ask that you join us in this very American pastime and ride with us for a most just cause.” – Capt. Shane D. Brown of the Muskegon County Sheriff’s Department contributing organizer of the ride.
The Patriot Ride, part of Muskegon Bike Time, is Sunday, July 22, 2018 and proceeds will benefit Every Woman’s Place (EWP). The ride begins and ends at Hot Rod Harley-Davidson. Registration begins at 10:00 AM, with the ride leaving at 11:00 AM. Riders will enjoy a scenic, non-stop, escorted ride through Muskegon County. A donation of $10 is suggested for each rider.
Clyde Whitehouse of Hot Rod Harley-Davidson in Muskegon commented, “We are more than happy to help Every Woman’s Place in any way we can.”
“On behalf of everyone at Every Woman’s Place, we are once again proud to be able to offer this experience, grateful for the support it means to our organization, and excited to welcome attendees of Muskegon Bike Time,” said Lori Rasmussen, Executive Director of EWP. “This is sure to be a wonderful weekend for our community, and we are hoping for a record-breaking year for the annual Patriot Ride.”
