RICHMOND, Virginia – Motorcycle Ride and Bike Ride do their part to help local charities.
Whether you have a motorcycle or not, you can still support the Ride To Survive Breast Cancer Ride. This is one of two events benefiting the American Cancer Society.
Sylvia Alexander-Wall, President of The Ladies Of Elegance Incorporated, sponsors the events.
“I think people need to know that in order to fight against anything you do, any charity event or trying to raise money, it takes a collective of people to do it,” Sylvia said.
You can join Ladies of Elegance Incorporated and other cycling groups for the Making Strides Against Breast Cancer walk later in October and for the Ride to Survive Breast Cancer on October 2.
From there, the bike parade will head to Pops Bar and Grill on Midlothian Turnpike. You can also support the event without having a bike.
“We also need the general public to come, whether you are in a car, on foot, on a bicycle, whether you want to ride in the procession with the motorcycles, whatever. We need everyone to come together to fight this. this is called cancer, ”Sylvia said.
Registration for the trip is $ 35. Donations can also be made. For more information, visit the event’s Facebook page or Ladies of Elegance Incorporated’s Facebook page website.
The 13th annual Virginia Credit Union Moonlight Ride will also take place on Saturday. It starts and ends at Sports Bakers Stadium and takes participants through Lakeside, Bryan Park and Scott’s Addition before ending with a street festival style celebration.
The three-mile family ride begins at 7:30 p.m. and the full eight-mile ride begins at 8 p.m.
Participants are encouraged to wear their best costumes as they ride.
The event supports Bike Walk RVA which advocates for comfortable and connected places to cycle and walk for people of all ages and abilities.
