Mission riders can sign up for May event

Motorcyclists will be coming through Mission May 27 for the annual Ride to Live

Mission motorcyclists are invited to join the Westcoast Ride to Live for Prostate cancer research on May 27.

The event starts in Chilliwack at the Eagle Landing Wal-Mart, with registration starting at 7 a.m. The ride begins at 9 a.m. with an RCMP escort to the first stop. After that the ride is unescorted and will continue to Rosedale, over to Agassiz, with the next stop at Sasquatch Inn. From there, the ride heads to Mission and then joins with the Vancouver ride.

The two groups will conclude the tour at Fraser Downs Racetrack and Casino in Cloverdale where there will also be live music, prizes, food, a classic car show, vintage emergency vehicles and more.

Registration is $25, and if you raise $100 or more in pledges, your fee is waived. Visit www.ridetolive.ca to register and for pledge forms. Riders can also pre-register May 26 at Mountainview Harley Davidson in Chilliwack.

Last year’s event raised $140,000. All monies go to prostate research and support for men diagnosed with this disease.
