Now in its ninth year, Ride for the Red wants to help more people than ever before. For our loyal participants, thank you for your support. For the newcomers, get ready for one of the largest motorcycle rallies in Kansas!
When you Ride for the Red, you’ll be supporting a good cause. In 2012, nearly 730 Ride for the Red participants raised $60,000 to help families in south-central Kansas.
So get on your bikes and ride, because when you do, you’ll be helping one of America’s favorite charities at a time Wichitans need it most.
Thank you to our presenting sponsor Bombardier Learjet.
8 a.m. Arrive at Red Cross
When you check in, you’ll instantly know we’re the real deal. Park in the bikers-only parking lot and mingle with hundreds of riders. Fill yourself with all-you-can-eat pancakes and sausage to prepare for a day on the open road.
10 a.m. Poker Run
Ride for the Red knows what you want. Made by riders for riders, you'll get out of town onto open byways in south-central Kansas. At stops along the 100-mile trip, you'll arrive to shaded parks and recreation centers to stretch your legs where you'll be treated like a VIP with free bottled water throughout the day as you work to win the grand prize.
Finish at Alefs for the Grand Prize
Final stop is at Alefs Harley-Davidson, and we want you to stick around. Play our game of skill to determine your last card. But don’t like what you got? We’ll be selling mulligans to try again for the top prize.
Every year, Ride for the Red works hard to acquire the best prizes of any poker run, and 2013 is no different! When you finish your trip at Alefs Harley-Davidson, one lucky rider will walk away with the grand prize, a trip for two to Las Vegas!
All Riders should be at Alefs by 2:00. Prizes will be announced at 2:30
