Boreal Bike Rally
Plamondon AB

Ride Like a Local spoke with Mel Kurpowsky with the Lac La Biche Lions Club and the organizer of the Boreal Bike Rally.  This is the 2nd year for the rally.  The ride is a get together for many riders to raise money and come out and enjoy themselves.

This year they are raising money for a young man who is loosing his eye sight.  Mikeys Sight, the name of this ride, will be raising money for computer equipment Mikey needs.  Mikey was born with a birth defect that causes him to lose his sight.  No in his early 20's he still sees a bit but it's going down.  His dream is to be a computer tech so the Lac La Biche Lions Club took him under their wing to get him the equipment he needs.

This is the Boreal Bike Rally's 2nd annual bike run.  15 volunteers, Lac La Biche Lions club, Apostles Motorcycle Society, the local art club as well as local individuals come together to offer their help and support.

Come share the beautiful forest area all year round with many events held all year round.

Don "Trooper" Minard
Apostles Motorcycle Society and Ministry

The Lac La Biche Lions Club approached the Apostles Motorcycle Society and Ministry about helping them with the rally and they were more than happy to offer their help.  They were responsible for organizing the rodeo and making sure all riders stay together and safe on the poker run.

Everybody had a great time and lots of laughs were had!

Phyllis couldn't wait to join in the fun for the day.  She loves to ride!
The community of Lloydminster just won Canadas MOST Rider Friendly Community Contest.  Phyllis is hoping the win will put a different slant on the way people view bikes and to get people excited why they hear the bikes.  To get people to see how much fundraising the bike community does and how much money they will spend when they ride through your community.  Phyllis is also hoping to do educational pieces around it.

Bordertown Hog is also doing their 8th annual Toy Run in Lloydminster Sept 15, 2018 and will be doing the presentation for Canadas Most Rider Friendly Community.

If you are blessed enough to live where you can be riding today, please remember to ride like everyone around you is blind and can not see you.
