Individual riders as well as motorcycle clubs such as the Chrome Divas, Ronin RC, Roughnecks, Enforcers, Women in the Wind, L.A.M.A., Defenders, Moose Riders, Harley Owners Groups, Abate & Leathernecks MC, just to name a few, will hit the road to support March of Dimes research and programs that help moms have full-term pregnancies and babies begin healthy lives. Last year nearly 2,000 residents participated in the ride, with family and friends there to join in the fun.
There will be a whole weekend of events starting on Friday, November 5th with the Naples Harley-Davidson Bike Night from 6 PM to 10 PM with vendors, live entertainment, food and refreshments. On Saturday, November 6th, the fun continues with a Bike Show starting at 2 PM at Harley-Davidson of Fort Myers. There will be vendors, food, refreshments, live entertainment and pre-registration for the Bikers for Babies until 10 PM Saturday evening.
Then, on Sunday, November 7th, the 35-mile law-enforcement escorted ride will begin at the North Collier Regional Water Park located at 15000 Livingston Road in Naples at 11am sharp. The procession will head north on Livingston Road where they will turn left (west) on Bonita Beach Road. The Bikers will then proceed around Bonita Beach, Fort Myers Beach, up San Carlos Boulevard to McGregor Boulevard and turn right (east) onto Colonial Blvd where they will end at the Harley-Davidson of Fort Myers dealership for lunch, refreshments, vendors, entertainment and awards.
Scott Fischer, 2010 Bikers for Babies Revenue Chair, says, “Seeing the riders set out together in support of the smallest members of our community is always an incredible sight. The roar of the bikes moving in unison speaks to the power this group has in working together for stronger, healthier babies.”
