BThere is rarely a weekend in Colorado’s riding season that riders don’t ride for a good charity or cause. Motorcycle riders have always been the go-to group when a charity needs assistance. At the same time, our community also suffers an epidemic of motorcycle accidents and fatalities and the community outside of ours, rarely steps up to help us.
On May 18th, 2019, motorcycle riders will join BikerDown for their 6th annual Look Twice Save a Life ride. This event is an opportunity for families and friends who have suffered a traumatic motorcycle accident in their lives or lost a loved one at the hands of a distracted driver to stand and ride together to help get the awareness out to driver’s in Colorado to WATCH FOR MOTORCYCLE RIDERS.
BikerDown has had the distinct privilege to work with organizations such as Rider Justice, CORD, CDOT, ABATE and representatives from our state legislator to change the laws in this state to protect not only motorcycle riders but the driving community. BikerDown has helped with raising the Texting and Driving penalties, and while we weren’t successful this year getting a ban on handheld mobile devices. All these organizations will not give up until we successfully make the roads safer.
This year, our theme is One Text or Call, COULD WRECK IT ALL…Watch for Motorcycles. We chose this year’s theme in honor of the hard work that all the organizations referenced above have done to make our roads safer for all riders, but specifically motorcycle riders.
Our ride will start at Avalanche Harley-Davidson in Golden with kickstands up at 10-10:30 am. Our ride will end safely at Dirty Dogs Roadhouse where we will have some amazing sponsors and entertainment there. Our sponsor for the ride, Rider Justice has enabled us to bring you some great entertainment on the 18th, we have secured Brothers of the Sun to play on the Rider Justice stage at Dirty Dogs. We will have amazing raffles, 50/50 drawings and most important silent and live auction items. Auctioneer Kenny Cupp from BD Arizona is coming into auction items for us.
This is BikerDown Colorado’s primary fundraiser that will enable us to continue the mission of helping injured riders until the end of the year!
