This issue will focus a lot on veterans and their upcoming events up in June. The Freedom Fest, Brotherhood of Veterans, Combat Vets and many more have events that will help our veterans with hands on services and boots on the ground assistance here in Colorado. It has always been my policy to donate and support charities that help actual residents and not send my funds to a charity outside of my local community.[Read more…] about Honoring Our Military
“I grew up playing Punch Buggy or Slug Bug, punching my sibling every time we spotted a VW bug,” says Scott O’Sullivan, founder of Rider Justice and owner of The O’Sullivan Law Firm. “I’ve always wanted to create a game for kids that raised awareness of motorcyclists and even bicyclists on the road.”[Read more…] about Rider Justice Has Created a New Car Game to Raise Awareness of Bikers
Colorado and mother nature being the way they are… you just never know what you are going to get every year for the BikerDown’s Look Twice Save a Life ride, but still the riders always say they wouldn’t miss this ride! The road captains were on messenger daily trying to alter their ride in the event of rain, hail or snow. Registrations were up this year and BikerDown had over 100 riders pre-register and we had an additional 50 riders register at Avalanche Harley-Davidson in Golden.[Read more…] about 6th Annual Look Twice Save a Life
A small local motorcycle ministry from Monument, Colorado is hitting the national riding event stage on June 21st in Las Vegas, Nevada. Russ Young is the leader of this Colorado group and this ride has been in his spirit for a number of years. As the President of the BikerDown Foundation, Russ and his ministry of riders have been assisting BikerDown thru biker advocacy and our adopt-a-family holidays program for the past 4 years. Whitehorse Riders have shown me their commitment to spreading the word of God and going out and helping others that desperately need assistance.[Read more…] about Whitehorse Riders Hosts Ride the Dream Ride in Las Vegas
For several months, Colorado Rider News has been telling riders about the chance to win a 2017 Harley-Davidson Road Glide in a bike raffle.

When I founded Rider Justice, I had many goals but, first and foremost, I want to make it safer for bikers to ride! We accomplish this through several efforts, including legislative advocacy (let’s end texting and driving!), and also by helping riders make sure they have the right motorcycle insurance (auto drivers don’t carry enough to cover the injuries they cause).
There 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.[Read more…] about 6th Annual Look Twice Save a Life
As a rider who has rode for many years, I have seen my share of friends having accidents. In April, I decided to attend an Accident Scene Management class hosted by BikerDown and Rider Justice, and Executive Director Laurie Montoya asked me to give a rider’s perspective of what I learned in the class. Boy did I learn a lot.
Wide Open Saloon is a new restaurant coming to Sedalia that will be opening this summer, but that isn’t stopping Wide Open Saloon from helping the motorcycle community in a charitable way, long before they are even open.
