I enjoy supporting charitable causes but I also believe in supporting our own.
So when I was asked by Mighty Peace Tourism to assist in developing a run for the North Peace I asked the Alliance for Injured Motorcyclists to be involved along with the Ride for Dad and we will be supporting the Peace River Toyker Run.

The Over Night Dice Run will begin in Grande Prairie on July 10th at 6 pm. Riders will meet, roll their first dice and then ride to Peace River with stops along the way for Ride Prize Draws. Once in Peace River both the Sawridge Inn & Conference Centre and the BMC Inns will be providing special room rates and the Sawridge will be hosting a meet & greet with free appies, your final dice roll of the day and some more ride prize draws.

Saturday morning will see us take in the Peace Fest pancake breakfast, and at 11 am we will meet up and take part in the Peace River Toy/Poker Run. A free lunch will be served at one of the stops and the run ends at Maximum Motorsports. The Dice run back to Grande Prairie leaves from Maximum (convenient huh!) and will end up back in Grande Prairie for a BBQ, the last of the ride prizes will be given out and the High Roller will get to find out what their winnings are!

The cost to be involved in the Dice run is $20 plus accommodations in Peace River and if you choose to participate in the Peace River Toyker Run the cost of your hand for that.

The proceeds of the run will be split between AIM-Can and the Ride for Dad and the very best part...the entire run is being filmed for a Motorcycle Tourism DVD that will promote riding in the North Peace!
Then on August 22nd, a number of our BDB Business Partners have teamed up to host customer appreciation runs that will leave from their business locations, converge in Thorsby at the Kountry Kitchen Bakery and then on to Drayton Valley for the V-Twin Diner Show 'n' Shine at the Rodeo Grounds and for those who want to make a weekend of it there is a Kissmania concert in Drayton Valley that night for $30 and free camping is supplied! If you want to enter the show 'n' shine you will only pay $20 as opposed to the regular fee of $25! They have some pretty spectacular prizes up for grabs too like a $1500 paint job, custom made his & hers jackets and more!

There will be a ton of Ride Prizes and the best part - there is NO cost to be on the run.

The businesses that are confirmed to be involved are:

Time Machine Motorsports - Edmonton
Insane Customs - Edmonton
Rose's Front Room - Blackfalds
Handle Bar Hideout - Sylvan Lake
Walking Eagle Inn & Lodge - Rocky Mountain House

We are awaiting confirmation from three other partner businesses.

We'll keep you up to speed on the customer appreciation event as it progress!
