Join us for a day of bike ridin' and chili cookin' while helping raise money for the American Red Cross-Texoma Area Chapter whose mission is to prevent emergencies in our community and alleviate the human suffering when emergencies do happen. Our work is only accomplished through donors who consistently give and empower volunteers to unite under one Red Cross to reach out to those who need us most.
Ride for Red is a full-day 151 mile motorcycle run with five stops. At each stop riders can pick up raffle tickets for prizes to be given away at the end of run. The chili competition takes place at the end of the day and trophies will be awarded to best chili team.
Bike Registration is $20 per motorcycle.
