Emily's Ride for PACE 

When: Sat., Aug. 17, 11 a.m. 2013
Price: Free
Motorcyclists have a pretty strong stereotype associated with them: burly, crude, bearded, leather-wearing men, and the occasional woman, who get into fights and have a problem with authority. While many of them wear leather and have beards, that’s pretty much where the stereotype ends — especially when you talk to the crew involved in Emily’s Ride for PACE. The ride, named after one of the students, is a way to receive donations for PACE Charter School, which helps children of all ages with disabilities through aiding students’ mobility and education. By offering field trips, community-based instruction, and outside therapy services, the students at PACE Charter School are able to have a more well-rounded experience then they would at a public school or purely medical institution. But it also means, they need different types of school supplies, such as paper towels, diapers, feeding tubes, latex gloves, and batteries. The bikers involved with the ride just want to help the kids, according to Allison Clossen, a biker and donations organizer. Pretty far from the gnarly stereotype, eh? Want to join the ride? Registration for the ride is from 10-11:30 a.m. at either Holy City Designs or Jason’s Garage, and while there is no fee to register, donations are encouraged. Non-bikers can also drop off any supplies at the participating garages before the start of the ride.
