Ride for Respect, 17th May. This is a new event for us and preliminary details are below, but at this stage I have no idea where our local event will be held. I will, however, check it out and let you all know in plenty of time. Bob Tanner. "The ride will be taking place this year in New Zealand for the first time. We have rides taking place all through the country on 17th May to raise funds for the RSA and to mark the ANZAC landing. The ride details are on facebook under offical ride of respect nz. Could you please pass this on to your members nation wide. The ride is not being run by a club although a number of the organizers are members of the Ulysses, Patriots, Widows Sons and Brothers in Arms.
Please give me a call if you have any questions.
It looks like this could be the largest ride of its type to take place in New Zealand and would be a great way for the biking community to show are respect.
I am the National President of the Widows Sons (Masonic Riders) and a member of the Patriots hence their involvement. Thank you for your time.
