The Carolina Rider's homebase at rallies and runs, The BIG RIDE Bus helped folks find us amidst a busy vendor field or convention center floor; provided refuge for staff and friends in the cold, heat, or rain; and could be the "in" place to party awhile. In a freak and devastating fire on August 14th while on the way to Sonny Productions' Maggie Valley Summer Rally, the bus and all of its contents (but none of its occupants!) was lost. Read accounts from various angles and check out photos and a memorial video PLUS SOME WAYS YOU CAN HELP!
The Carolina Rider is helping to sponsor a new charity ride brought to you by the Charlotte Area Shriners who do good work for the good of children in need. The ride benefits Shriners International as well as Second Harvest Food Bank. All participants are asked to bring a CANNED GOOD to go to the food bank to further help folks in need. Ride begins at the new headquarters of MetLife who have just moved to the Ballantyne area and want to get involved. Who better to turn to than the biker community for that?! Along with The Litigator - Jason E. Taylor, The Big Hairy Fox - WRFX, and The Carolina Rider, this promises to be a wild time!
The Pediatric Brain Tumor Foundation is headquartered in The Carolinas - Asheville, NC to be exact. This national effort to fund medical research and family support programs is built on two wheels. Through a series of motorcycle rides around the country, this foundation raises money and awareness and has a lot of fun doing so. Each ride involves patients and their families and recruits riders with available passenger seats for them!
