It’s June now, and most Canadians motorcyclists have started their riding season. That means there are lots more weekend events to take part in.

The Ride for Dad rallies continue across the country, with events in Comox, Durham, Edmonton, Toronto West,  and even the Yukon on Saturday. There’s also a Ride for Dad in the Okanagan on Sunday.

If you’re in Trenton, Nova Scotia, you can take part in the Ride for Sight on Saturday. Raise $50, and you can meet up with the other riders at Steeltown Park and take place in a parade through the New Glasgow area. There will also be a show ‘n shine, bike games, an auction and live evening concert. Find out more here.

If those events sound a little tame for your liking, you can always head to Ontario to take part in the Sarnia-Lambton Bikers Rights Organization’s Shoot ‘n Scoot this Sunday.

It’s set up sort of like a poker run, but instead of picking up cards at stops along the ride’s route, you’ll have the chance to shoot paintball guns and throw knives and hatchets at targets. If this sounds like mad fun to you, then call 519-845-0239. It costs $10 to sign up. Registration takes place between 11 a.m. and 12:30 p.m. at Mitchell’s Yamaha in Wyoming, Ontario.

If you want to take in some flat track racing, head to the track at Thorhild, Alberta, to watch the Alberta Vintage Flat Track Association’s first race of the year; Saturday is a track day, and Sunday is when the actual racing goes down. Find out more details about the AVFTA here.

The Canadian Motorcycle Drag Racing Association is also holding a race weekend in Alberta on June 9-10; the Spring Nationals take place in Edmonton this weekend. Find out more details about the series, including a link to spectator information, here.
