Freedom Riders Memorial Run

Every spring, the Freedom Riders Motorcycle Association holds its annual Memorial Run to remember fallen members.

It was -2C this morning (that's right, MINUS) when Leo came over. We set out together at 9:00 AM on the bikes for Fielding Memorial Park in Lively. Sandy opted not to go due to the cold.

The turnout was excellent. Father Jolicouer from Christ The King Church conducted our remembrance ceremony and blessed us for the upcoming season. He has been doing this for us for years and, in return, this year we presented him with a club patch and informed him that he had been inducted as a Honorary Member of the club.

The assembled multitudes

Everyone listening intently

I guess they will trike anything:-))

Following the service, we all rode over to Mr. J's Roadhouse in Lively for brunch. There had been an issue last year with their not being ready for us, This time, all was set and ready to go. I found the food and service to be excellent.

Some were slower to get their food

After brunch, most of the members followed President Rob for a ride to Manitoulin Island. I decided to skip the ride and head back home.
