Richard’s Ride is a charity motorcycle ride dedicated to the memory of Richard Andrew “Junior” Dawson who passed away from an asthma attack in September 1994.
This year's ride is scheduled for Sunday, August 26.
Registration for the ride takes place in Lot 4 at Mount Royal University beginning at 10 am. The ride starts at 11 am.
The ride includes a poker run and goes from Mount Royal University to Bragg Creek, down highway 762, through Turner Valley and Black Diamond and ends at the Longview Hall.
Lunch will be served at Longview and prizes for the poker run and lots of draw prizes are awarded. Riders then make their way home via their own routes. This is a small ride with usually no more than 40 or 50 bikes and everyone rides at their own pace.
Registration for the ride is $10 (not-tax deductible) and tax receipts will be issued for donations of $10 or more.
