Topline B.A.D. Ride 21 details:
Each year, 500+ riders on sport bikes, cruisers, tourers, choppers, customs, scooters, trikes and rat bikes come out on the last Sunday in May for B.A.D. Ride in support of Distress Centres. We hope you’ll consider joining us!
B.A.D. Ride 21 is on Sunday, May 27th, 2018. It kicks off at Markham Fairgrounds, weaves through Ontario backroads with a suggested route designed by motorcycle enthusiasts, has a midway stop, and returns to an after-party where registered riders will enjoy a BBQ lunch, live entertainment, swag, contests, exhibitions, a silent auction, give-aways, VIP upgrades and the opportunity to win this year’s grand prize – a 2018 Harley-Davidson Softail® Street Bob®!
Our Vision is to ensure that every individual in need receives life-sustaining emotional support. You can find more information on B.A.D. Ride here: www.badride.ca
