Are you bad to the bone? If so, maybe you ought to head out on this Sunday’s B.A.D Ride, starting in Vaughan, Ontario, and ending in Markham.
Of course, there’s nothing really that tough and edgy about the B.A.D. Ride – the name is an acronym for Bikers Against Despair, and the ride raises money for the Toronto Distress Centres. The Centres operate as a resource for grief counseling, crisis intervention, suicide prevention, and the like. They need money to operate, and the Ride is a great fundraiser.
There are some great prizes to be won as well. Registration costs a minimum of $75 for each participant, and that gives you one ticket for the prize draw. Every additional $50 in donations you raise gets you another ticket. The grand prize this year is a Harley-Davidson Fat Bob.
Registration starts 8 a.m. at AMC Theatres at AMC Complex Interchange Way, just off highways 400 and 7. The ride leaves at 9:45, and ends at the Markham Fairgrounds around 1:30 p.m.. Participants can also register at the fairgrounds at the end, where there will be food and live music until the event ends at 4 p.m. with the draw for the Harley-Davidson.
