"Friday 13" @Cochrane

For those not aware of it, this coming Friday is the start of the Western equivalent to Ontarios Friday the 13th. See below, which is excerpted from the ALW (Alberta Lone Wolves) notifications. I entered 5 PM as it's referenced in the writeup, but we could go later. Suggested starting place is the Rona parking lot near the gas station @

Everyone has heard of Friday the 13th - Port Dover, Ontario, where every Friday the 13th there is a get together of motorcyclists for the one day. It started out with only 25 or so bikes the first year, 1981, and now attracts thousands. It is one of the biggest events for motorcycles in Eastern Canada.

Western Canada is due for the same event and Alberta has it. It is Friday, September 13th from 5 pm to whenever it is done that night. It should eventually rival Ontario's event. So, rain or shine, ride your motorcycle to Cochrane, Alberta. Just hang out and check out all the cool rides! Everyone welcome!"


This year BIKER TV, part of the CTV National Network, are participating in the event and will highlight Cochrane on the national stage again.

    We''ve broken the Poker Run on Saturday 14th into a separate event. Register separately if interested. Details on it are found on Belt Drive Betty website, under Events, AB events, etc which reads as below. I've got a call in for more details, (ie where it originates in Cochrane) but no answer so far.

    Quote:
    This is the 3rd annual Rolling Thunder rally, A 250km fun poker rally that originates in Cochrane Alberta, travels to Exshaw, Canmore, Stoney Nakoda Resort and back to Cochrane for awards, prizes, steak dinner and dancing.
    There are fun games along the ride to allow riders to swap out cards for a better poker hand. Registration costs are $50.00/rider $35.00/passenger, bring in $200.00 or more in sponsorship and you pay on ly $35.00. All monies raised through registrations, games and donations go directly to woundedwarriors.ca Veterans foodbank donations are also welcomed.

      Hopefully, the RCMP are going to be OK with it? They might not take kindly to 100's of bikes descending upon Cochrane..... should be interesting for sure

    The ALW( ALberta Lone Wolves) Will be there on Friday. We are going to be parking along main street starting by the Mc Kays Ice Cream shop. I will be there by 5:30 to kick it off. Not sure yet how many wolves are coming but we will be there to show our pride. I know its just a start to this but lets see how big we can get it.

    I believe for the poker run, they are meeting at Cochrane Legion? Registration is 9:30 to 10:30 and it ends up back at the legion, couple of bands and a BBQ, should be a fun old time.... I'm in

    September 8, 2013

  • Kevin

    I'm in for the friday the 13th event. I want to go out there and see what it's all about.

    September 8, 2013

  • Ken W.

    PS: Open to other suggestions as to start time and/or location but Crowfoot is s good kickoff point as we're almost out of the city's N.W. corner for 1A route to Cochrane.
