Area motorcycle enthusiasts looking for that early spring ride for a cause were disappointed when the April 30 “Ride for Rescues” — in support of Ohio Rottweiler Rescue — was canceled due to severe weather.
But all’s well that ends well, said Gayla Francis Evans of Ohio Rottweiler and Boston Terrier Rescue, and it isn’t over until it’s over.
Evans announced that Ride for Rescues will take place this Saturday, June 11. The ride fee is $15 per rider and $5 per passenger. Registration is from 11 a.m. until 12:30 p.m. at Sunbury’s Fraternal Order of Eagles Aerie 3614, 235 N. Columbus St. in Sunbury.
The 1 to 6 p.m. ride, starting and ending at the Sunbury Eagles Club, visits Henson’s Pub in Johnstown, Boondocks in Fulton, Kintz’s Bar & Grill in Delaware, AD Farrow Harley Davidson at the Ohio 36/SR 37 and I-71 interchange, and Sunbury’s Firehouse Tavern.
Evans said there will be beer, burgers and brats upon return to the Eagles Club; and prizes like a $200 AD Farrow Gift certificate, Black Hawk Golf Course certificates, a dinner at Joe’s Firehouse Tavern, and others.
Evans said 100 percent of the ride’s proceeds go to the care of homeless, abused, neglected and unwanted dogs rescued by Ohio Rottweiler Rescue, including mixes and other breeds.
