Canadian Motorcycle Cruiser’s (CMC) 027 Stratford Chapter to take override for charity.

Stratford, ON – February 1, 2017 – With the changes made to Perth County tourism late last year so comes changes to the annual motorcycle event, the Forbidden Ride. Rather than cancel the ride, first officer Dan “Big Dawg” Wagler from Stratford’s own motorcycle riding club( CMC 027) decided to have the chapter take it over. Dan says ‘We are changing a few things to the event, like raising funds for a local charity the “Fresh Start Program”, further destination riding and fewer stamp-stops. We are excited, as this event, is all about the ride.’

As a result, we have always kept aside new and nearly new donation to help give people a Fresh Start. Items include steel-toed shoes, workwear and work safety gear, boots, thermal socks, hats and gloves, crockpots, toaster ovens, electric fry pans, dish sets, snowsuits, duffle bags, mobility equipment (canes and crutches), and more. Funding through the Fresh Start Forbidden Ride will allow us to make sure we have these items in stock to help whenever a special situation arises.
