Starting out in Richardson we will head north - The overall ride is about 2 hours long, not quite 100 miles. Along the way there are a few places you can stop to refuel your bike, or yourself! (Stay hydrated!) While we will do a mass start at 9:30 am, riders are encouraged to go at your own pace and arrive safely at Harley-Davidson Dallas on Centerville in Garland for the festivities. We will have a live band, vendors, raffle drawings and more! Each paid participant will receive a meal ticket for lunch at the end.

Benefitting: When you hear "Game On" during the City of Richardson's Corporate Challenge - it's not always just about sports. There is a philanthropic element to the event as all participating companies are asked to raise a minimum of $1,000 for Special Olympics Texas, the events charity of choice for 16 years. To date, the Challenge has given this organization over $1.1 million, which has provided hundreds of Special Olympic Athletes with uniforms, transportation to competitions, quality equipment and hours of practice time. So, Put on your boots and throw on them shades, kick stands up - let's fire up the motorcade! We all love the freedom we have in this great nation, come ride with us - let's start the celebration! THE GREAT RIDE! for a great cause... ride safe!
