Spring is right around the corner and the riding season is coming upon us quickly. Mark your calendars for the 7th Annual Blessing of the Bikes. May 3rd. I have attached a flyer for the event and feel free to share it with whomever you like. Last year we had 150 motorcycles at the Blessing and over 200 people at the picnic after the ride through the country. I can’t wait to see what this year will bring. We expanded the committee to include our friends from West Hills Honda Rider Club. For safety reasons we will break up into several riding groups.

If you haven’t had a chance to check out the new website this is a good time to do so. You can easily Pre- Register on the home page. This will help in moving the event along as it is growing. But if you don’t Pre register that’s OK you can also register on the day of the event.

Until then Ride Save!

Thank You,
CPC Riders

We are looking for any volunteer motorcyclists to help with our event. This event is a bicycle ride to raise money for diabetes research and support. There are 4 different routes the bicyclist will be riding and we are looking for motorcyclist to patrol the routes to make sure all cyclists are okay and to do a sweep to make sure everyone is through certain areas (then contacting the start/finish line via phone).
