No Politics – Just Patriotism Ride
“Fall in”…. our 67 mile ride around Charlotte has two purposes; first being to honor our fallen Veterans at Memorial Day. The second is to show a huge display of public support to our Veterans out there living with Post Traumatic Stress because June is recognized as National Post-Traumatic Stress Awareness Month. You fought for us, now we’re fighting for you!
Motorcycles, Mini Vans, Jeeps, Monster Trucks & Luxury Cars are all encouraged to roll with us around the I-485 loop! We’ll ride together to show our love for America and our Veterans! Bring the family; bring the dog. Dress like Uncle Sam, bring your posters & banners too. Let’s fly our flags down the highway to show our Veterans that we support the job they have been doing for the USA. No Politics – Just Patriotism !
