    Sunday, June 7th - 9th Annual Ride For Doug

    Ride For Doug is an annual fundraiser ride for Muscular Dystrophy Canada. Over the first 8 years, the ride has raised $130,000 for the fight against Muscular Dystrophy. 2014 was the second consecutive year over $30,000.

    The ride takes the approach of "Sportbike roads, at a cruiser pace". We take a 200km route through some of the finest motorcycling roads in Langley, Abbotsford, and Mission. We end up at a BBQ dinner to celebrate the ride, and win some door prizes.

    Date: Sunday, June 7th 2015
    Registration: 12:00-12:30pm
    Ride Leaves: 1:00 pm
    BBQ: 5:30pm
    Fee: $20 includes both ride and BBQ


    Watch the official website for registration details: http://www.ridefordoug.com

    Departs and Returns to:
    South Langley Church Lot - 20098 22nd Ave, Langley, BC


    If you've never been on this ride, it's a great one. Not only are the roads first rate, but Doug is still able to ride with us. He is 12 years old, and every bit as much a biker as the rest of us. Once you've ridden with him, you'll never be able to think of Muscular Dystrophy the same way.

    If you can't make it out for the ride - join us for the BBQ (by donation). Last year we had 113 motorcycles, but the BBQ fed over 350 people.

    Please feel free to spread the word by copying this message to other riding groups. You can also find us on Facebook at www.facebook.com/RideForDoug, or on twitter at @RideForDoug

    Photos of last year's ride can be found at: theresawiebephotography.pass.us/ridefordoug2014/

    See you there!

    I've done RFDs since 2010. I'll be there tomorrow for my sixth one.
    The difference between theory and practice is larger in practice than in theory.

    That is awesome. 2010 - was that the very wet year? This year looks like it will finally dry off the leathers from then.

    Packing up now to head out there for final prep - see you at the ride!

    I had hoped the rain would just be light but it ended up raining fairly hard. Luckily it was sunny each year since.
