Join fellow motorcycle enthusiasts for a scenic ride through parts of Madison and Onondaga counties as part of the fifth annual Ride for Clear Path on Sunday, Sept. 24.

More than 400 riders and non-riding participants attended last year’s event, which begins and ends at Clear Path for Veterans, 1223 Salt Springs Road, Chittenango. The event features a 46-mile (approximately 70-minute) ride along a rural trail that will pass through a couple of villages. One highlight for riders and passers-by is the pass through the village of Chittenango.

All motorcycle riders should check-in on the day of the event between 10-11 a.m.; kickstands are up at 11:30 a.m. A barbecue lunch provided by Clear Path’s culinary team will be served at 1 p.m. followed by presentations and raffle drawings.

Registration on or before Sept. 17 is $20 per person – riders, passengers and non-riders are welcome. Your registration includes coffee and snacks before the ride, the savory barbecue dinner after the ride and music. The late registration fee (after Sept. 17) is $30 per person and event day-of registration will be accepted. Raffle tickets will also be available for sale at the event. All proceeds from the ride benefit Clear Path for Veterans.

One highlight of the event will be the drawing of the winner of the Southern Hills Posse’s mini-chopper raffle (pictured at right); tickets will still be available for purchase the day of the event. This custom bike is street legal and features custom paint emblazoned with Clear Path’s logo.

Specific ride instructions will be given the day of the event, and riders are asked to familiarize themselves with their bike prior to the ride.

The ride will be held rain or shine, and all riders and passengers must sign a waiver and liability release.
