4th of July Parade Ride
The Fourth of July is no ordinary date in the calendar. This day marked the beginning of the US modern history, the history of independence and the formation of the new independent state. On July 4, 1776, the members of the Second Continental Congress signed the Declaration of Independence. The first signer was the President of the Second Congress John Hancock whose signature immortalized the American independence No one else signed that day. The Declaration was adopted in Philadelphia, where guns fired, candles were lighted and bells rang the whole day. The next day the declaration was publicly announced in all major American cities. In 2018 as Patriotic Riders, we have always celebrated the 4th of July by riding in the Safety Harbor Parade. The parade is a throwback to yesteryear, small town Main Street lined with families and little tikes waving flags. The Parade itself is only one mile long and will take you 10-15 minutes to complete the ride. But Safety Harbor is a beautiful little town that continues to hold onto it’s small town roots. To start the day, well, breakfast. We will meet at the Paradise Restaurant (443 Main St, Safety Harbor, FL 34695) in Safety Harbor at 8:00am and have our KSU to the Parade starting point at 9:00am. I encourage all to wear your Patriotic Rider stuff, have some US Flags on your bike as well as water and sunscreen. The parade will end at the American Legion, where we will park and go inside for some AC and a drink. After that you are free to enjoy the 4th however you wish.

What we're about

Patriotic Riders is a meetup to unite America-loving motorcycle riders who seek and support rides and events with a patriotic purpose. Many rides will be for our veterans and other charities that support our vets. We also will take rides to museums, reenactments, and other venues and events that share the history and the honor of our great country. The latest events and dates will be posted here so members can make sure they are in the know on the events that express our love for our country, and our thanks for the men and women that have protected us and our freedoms.

If you would like to be a Patriotic Rider, we ask that you first attend a ride or two so you can get to know us, and we can get to know you. After we have done so, if you would like to be an active member you can request to join this meetup. (We don't just add members based on an online click with no in-person riding, because we are looking for riders that actually come out and ride with us, not just numbers for a membership role.) We hope to see you on a future ride!
