Riders take part in the annual Bikers Against Child Abuse benefit ride to help end child abuse.
On Sunday, January 20, 2013, Orlando Harley-Davidson
will host a pair of events benefiting the Tri-County Chapter of BIKERS AGAINST CHILD ABUSE (B.A.C.A.).
POLICE ESCORTED MOTORCYCLE RIDE
Starting at 11:45 a.m., the motorcycle convoy will travel on I-4 from Downtown Disney West Side to the Orlando Harley-Davidson Historic Factory Dealership off of I-4, located at 3770 37th St, Orlando, Florida 32805. (Note: I-4 will be closed to the public during this time.)
Ride registration will be from 10:00 a.m. to 11:30 a.m. in Downtown Disney West Side Parking Lot N (adjacent to Cirque du Soleil – La Nouba), and requires a $10 donation (cash or check) per rider, and a $5 donation per passenger. Donations will benefit Tri-County B.A.C.A.’s efforts to prevent child abuse.
A note from the Tri-County Chapter of B.A.C.A.: “We would like to invite riders of all skill level to this ‘patch friendly’ event. Whether you are new riding or have adopted a ‘Live To Ride, Ride To Live’ lifestyle, we would love to see the entire spectrum of motorcyclists and bikers helping to create awareness of the struggle to put an end to child abuse. Imagine the message this will send throughout Central Florida. No child should live in fear!!”
From noon to 3 p.m., hundreds of riders and members of the public will be treated to entertainment and food, including live music by Diablo Canyon and a host of rider-related activities.
Attendance is free and open to the public. Ride participants will receive free food and beverage upon arrival. Food and beverage will be available for purchase for non-ride participants.
