Saturday morning, local bikers and community members are invited to converge on DAT Bar for the 1st Annual “Rosco’s Ride.”
Local biker “Rosco,” member of temporary Northwoods Chapter Bikers Against Child Abuse (B.A.C.A®) has organized a 135-mile ride to benefit and raise awareness for the B.A.C.A Northwoods Chapter. In addition, Rosco hopes to stock much-needed vests,jackets and teddy bears for the young child heroes the B.A.C.A organization assists on a routine basis.
As Rosco explains, anyone is welcome to join the ride whether a biker or motorist.
“All makes, models and cars are welcome to ride with us and support our cause. We are expecting a couple dozen (participants) for sure but we are hoping for more. It’s one of the last good weekends to ride and we are incorporating some beautiful scenic lake side roads in the ride route,”
The ride is set for a 10 a.m. registration at DAT Bar (1404 W. Main St.) Saturday morning,, then its ‘kick stands up’ at 11 a.m.
The first stop on the ride will be Bill’s Bar in Pine River. Riders will then continue east to Ricks 45 Roadhouse in Antigo and head north to Jekyll & Hydes in Pickerel, before proceeding on to Harrison Oasis and Rodeo Bar in Tomahawk.
The final stop will be a return to DAT Bar Saturday afternoon.
Cost is $20/per rider and $15/per backseat.
Upon paying the entry fee, participants are given an entry into the 50/50 dice run. Donation of a child’s vest or jacket, or a teddy bear, will be valid for a bonus entry into the 50/50 dice run.
All proceeds will be paid to the Northwoods Chapter of BACA.
