The 6th annual Troop Ride was held on Saturday, July 27th, 2013
We are proud to announce the grand total being donated to the USO this year is $15,000. Thank you everyone for making this year's ride such a success. We would like to take this opportunity to thank our sponsors and volunteers for working so hard to make the ride happen.
We had around 400 people attend this year's ride. The weather could have cooperated a bit more, but we made it work. Rain showers caused us to depart a bit early from the Bath V.A. This was a tough decision since spending time with the veterans is one of our favorite parts of the ride.
As a result of leaving Bath early, we arrived at the Big Flats American Legion earlier than planned.We realize the wait for the chickens caused some frustration. We would like to make it clear that this was due to our decision to change the schedule. We feel the safety of our riders should always come first. We thank the Big Flats American Legion and their Auxilary for working with us and doing their best to accomodate a flood of starving bikers.

Troop Ride is a parade-style motorcycle ride around the Finger Lakes area of New York. All of the proceeds from this ride are donated to the USO. Many of us have family members in the military overseas and this is one way we can help make their lives just a little bit better.
