Wounded Warrior Bike Ride March 15

32

The last bicycle ride of this season, to benefit Wounded Warriors is set for Fri Mar 15. The riders will be treated to a pizza lunch at Ron Dao’s Sports Bar, the first stop on the 10-mile bicycle trip. Ron Dao’s, located at 15320 McGregor Blvd, wanted to show their thanks to the group who so far have raised over $15,000 to benefit the WWP.

The ride takes place the 3 d Friday of each month November – March.  They leave the Groves RV Resort on John Morris Rd at 1 pm, then make stops at Ron Daos, Pickles, Valerie’s, Bay Side and end up at Busters. At each stop, riders draw a playing card and the winning hand gets 60% of the pot, with other prizes for 2nd and 3rd place hands.

The ride is open to anyone over 18. The cost is $10 of which half goes to WWP. Riders must purchase a safety yellow shirt for $15 of which $7 goes to WWP.  So far, the group has raised $1,900 this year Registration takes place at 12:30 the day of the ride at lot 239 in the Groves. Over 80 patriotic men and women participate in the ride.

If you see the large group of bike riders in yellow shirts on McGregor Blvd or San Carlos Blvd, honk your horn in support of this worthy project.
