Biker club rides for Good Cheer

The newly formed American Legion Riders of South Whidbey will hold its first ever motorcycle run Sunday.

And they will do it as a benefit for Good Cheer Food Bank & Thrift Stores. Bill Hughes, the motorcycle club’s Sergeant at Arms, said 100 percent of the day’s proceeds will go toward the organization.

“We’re calling it the Good Cheer Run,” Hughes said.

Registration is at 10 a.m. at the American Legion’s South Whidbey headquarters in Bayview at 14096 Washington off Highway 525. The ride is expected to begin by 11 a.m. and the cost is $15 per person.

The planned course will stay on rural county roads and take about two hours to complete.

“It’s all back country roads, real picturesque stuff up and down the island,” Hughes said.

Once complete, riders and the general public are invited to enjoy a range of activities at the legion. They include a motorcycle show, raffle, food, music and possible a host of classic cars.

The fledgling club was formed this past May. It’s hoped that the run will become an annual event, Hughes said.

For details about the ride, call Hughes at 360-941-3483.
