The 'Ride of Respect' Began in 2020 and was created by David Burrows with support from several local motorcycle enthusiasts. Special thank you to Pam Scott of the Sarnia CMC Chapter 016 for planning the route of the inaugural ride.
The 'Ride of Respect' is to show respect for our frontline workers and create awareness to the community that motorcycles are on the road and to remind everyone to 'respect' the rules of the road so that everyone can arrive safely to their destinations.
The event will once again start and end with our friends at Ozwelds Diner.
We will be riding past 21 specific points in the city. This includes: Long-term care homes, hospital, Police, Fire, Jail and other front-line locations along the route.
Arrival and staging will begin at 11:30 am on Saturday May 29th. Kick Stands Up at 1 pm
The ride is 46 km through the city of Sarnia and will take about 1 hour and 10 minutes, depending on our speed. As we intend to slow down and wave at certain locations along the way it will likely take longer.
There is no fee to join the ride.
We will be asking for donations to support Ohana Landing, a Youth Transitional Housing Facility in Sarnia.

Please see the route below.
Check back often for updates as we are planning to add more elements to the ride.
We of course want everyone to be safe during the ride. Remember to 'RESPECT' other riders and vehicles on the road.
Additionally, I believe it is vitally important that everyone 'RESPECT' and follow the COVID-19 guidelines that are in place on the day of the ride.
While registration is not required, I would ask that you please take a moment and fill out the google form if you plan to attend. This will help us to get an idea of how many riders to expect and will help with planning.
