Calvert County Bike Rides for LEAP Forward, Inc.

Was a Success!

On Saturday 14 April, 60 motorcycles and their passengers participated in the Calvert County Bikers United first annual charity ride in support of LEAP FORWARD, Inc.  This was the first fund raising event for 2012.  The motorcycles departed the Prince Frederick Shopping Center at 11:00 am and headed North on Route 4 with a police escort provided by the Calvert County Sheriff Department.  The planned route took the bikers through Calvert, Anne Arundel, Prince Georges and St Mary’s counties.  The final destination was Vera’s Beach Club in Lusby, MD.  The ride took approximately 1 hour 45 minutes.  While at Vera’s, a number of door prizes were given away. 

Special thanks to Alma Thomas and the Southern Maryland Spinners Motorcycle Club for planning this event.  Additional thanks to other members of Bikers United (Calvert County Joy Riders Motor Cycle Club, Eclipse Sport Ryderz Motorcycle Club and too Deep Motorcycle Club).  Special thanks to the other riders from other bike clubs and persons outside of Calvert County who participated. Special thanks also for those who made contributions but could not participate in the ride.  We also thank Kim Thomas, Pam Berry, Rhonda Thomas and Dorissa-from the Eclipse Motorcycle Club for getting all the bikers registered.  Thank you Corporate Headquarters of Harley Davidson for donating key chains, magnets and pens! And extra special thanks to Myra Campbell for soliciting  many of the  items used for door prizes from the many business in Calvert County including a one night stay at the Holiday Inn-Solomons. Also thanks to the many local businesses and the Board members who provided the door prizes.

We also extend a thank you to the Calvert County and Charles County Sheriff’s Departments, who donated their time for the ride escort.
