Sudbury Ontario - Freedom Riders Memorial Ride and Bash

Every year, the Freedom Riders hold a club only gathering to enjoy each other's company. We usually start off with a Memorial Ride to honour fallen members.

This year, the bash was held at the Mine Mill site the week after the Freedom Rally and we celebrated another successful event while taking care of leftover merchandise from the concession.

Before the bash, a number of us ride from Mine Mill to Fielding Memorial Park where we gathered at a tree planted in memory of Alex Ogilvy, a founding member who was taken from us way too soon. We remembered those who have gone on before riding back to the Bash.

The bash had a good turnout. We burned scrap wood and trees in a roaring bonfire and ate a fine supper. Sandy and I left fairly early but we heard the party really got going after we were gone.
