On August 10th 2010 I will be heading out from Grande Prairie to Canada's Largest Motorcycle Rally - the Wharf Rat Rally in Digby Nova Scotia. My hubby is planning on joining me on the ride along with Mike Cole from the Winter Ride for Diabetes known as Radical Roads.

Along the way we are going to hook up with Daryl Makk and his Planet Tour in Regina on the 12th of August where he will be doing a Stand Up and time to be announced.

On the 13th we will be in Winnipeg where again Daddy Makk will be performing and on the 14th we are going to take a day and go to the beach. Daryl is filming everything he does for a reality TV show called the Planet Tour...

From there we will head to Thunder Bay, Sault St Marie and into Barrie and the GTA. In the GTA - if not sooner, we will be hooking up with Shaun de Jager from Road Awareness.
Then to Petawawa for a Red Friday event and Ottawa, Montreal, Grand Falls perhaps and in to Digby. Along the way the kids from the Bernice MacNaughton High School Bike Klub and their Championship Bobber - Betty, will meet up with us for the last leg into Digby.

We will have a web site and fund raising pages created shortly and those who choose to will be able to donate to one of the multitude of causes that we are raising awareness and funds for:

Alliance for Injured Motorcyclists Canada - donate or get involved by becoming a member or starting a chapter...

The Planet Tour - Injured Rider/Comedian Daryl Makk and his new reality TV Show...

Radical Roads - Diabetes Research & Mike Cole's Winter ride January 2011 - donate to one or both...

Road Awareness - Support Shaun in his goal of creating better drivers and riders through awareness.

The Bernice MacNaughton High School Bike Klub - Help them get to the Donnie Smith Chopper Challenge in 2011...

Give the Kids the World Village - help us to send terminally ill kids and their families to Orlando Florida and the greatest place on earth for kids to heal...

And last but not least - take Belt Drive Betty up on her challenge to come ride the North.
If I can ride to Digby Nova Scotia and all over Canada - some of you need to come visit me here in the North and experience everything we have to offer here!
