Wounded Warrior Project Bike RIde


The final bicycle ride of the season to benefit the Wounded Warrior Project will be held on Fri March 18th. The seniors from the Groves RV Resort have raised over $1,100 this year and over $8,000 since the group started the event 7 years ago.

In Feb, 57 seniors ranging in age from 60 to 87 made the 10-mile ride, which leaves the Groves RV Resort at 1 pm and makes 5 stops to draw cards. The winning poker hand splits the pot with half of the $10 entry fee per rider going to WWP.

The riders, wearing safety yellow shirts draw a lot of attention from passing motorists and are given the right a way while crossing busy intersections.

The Bayside Bar and Grill always donates three $10 gift certificates to the top three hands

Anyone can join the ride, for information on joining call either Phil at 616-481-1551 or Dick at 603-355-7980
