Motorcycle ride to benefit Pioneer Center

McHENRY – The seventh annual Pioneer Motorcycle Ride will be Saturday.

All proceeds will benefit Pioneer Center for Human Services, a social service agency that provides direct care to more than 4,800 individuals each year.  

The ride started seven years ago with only five riders. Today, on average, more than 50 riders enjoy the ride through Wisconsin.  

This year, the Moose Lodge in Johnsburg, 3535 Richmond Road, will host the starting point for the ride, providing coffee and doughnuts to start the day at 8 a.m. 

All riders should plan to pay the registration fee of $25 per rider or $30 with a passenger the day of the event. Registration begins at 9 a.m., and the ride starts at 10 a.m.

There will be multiple stops along the way with door prizes and a 50/50 raffle. Stops in Wisconsin include Knucklehead’s in Eagle, Blue Overalls in Elkhorn and Kip and Deb’s in Sharon.

Riders wishing to “do a little extra” are encouraged to collect pledges for their participation from friends and family to help provide additional funding for Pioneer’s programs.

Ninety-two cents of every dollar raised goes directly to providing services to the community.
