The 3rd annual ‘Ride of Respect’ will take place on Saturday, June 18th, 2022.
The inaugural event that took place in May 2020 had 125 motorcycles riding a 50 km route through the city to show respect to the frontline workers.
Several motorcycle enthusiasts will once again be riding through the city of Sarnia, to say thank you to the many frontline workers including, Police, Fire, EMS Healthcare workers and so many others in our community.
The ride is also to remind people that motorcycles are on the road and to be aware when driving.
The event begins at 11:30 am at Preferred towing in Sarnia. All motorcycle riders are welcome as is anyone wanting to come by and check out the motorcycles. The ride will begin at 1 pm and is an 83 km tour through the city of Sarnia as well as Bright’s Grove and then finish at London Line Burger..
Additionally, this year we will be driving past the Aamjiwnaang Band office on Tashmoo Ave. and back down St. Clair Parkway to give respect to the loss of indigenous children and their families.
“The ride is to show respect to everyone in our community and their commitment to making our community a positive place to live and enjoy.” It is also to remind everyone to be respectful and safe when driving. Additionally, it shows that we can always come together as a community to overcome the highest of mountains and achieve greatness!”
“I am also very grateful for the support of my friends at London Line Burger, OPSEU Local 128 Corrections Division, Preferred Towing and several of my fellow riders and friends for their support and encouragement with the event.
