We decided that this year would be different. A call went out to the members and a good turnout gathered at the CP train station in Sudbury at 5:00 PM. We rode as a group to Civic Square soon after and lined up alongside HOG, GWTA and a few others.
Sudbury's new mayor, Marianne Matichuk, joined us and, after some introductory words by Danielle of HOG (and also Freedom Riders), Her Worship read the proclamation naming May as Motorcycle Awareness Month in Sudbury and exhorting automobile drivers to exercise caution.

After the proclamation, Road Captain Nepper led the Freedom Riders to the Dog House Restaurant in Azilda where a few of the HOG riders joined us for supper. The food was good and our server, who handled 24 of us singlehandedly, was absolutely amazing. "No problem", she kept saying, and it wasn't.
We also managed to make it home before the rains arrived, one of the key signs of a successful ride.
