Successful Ride

All I can say about last weekends ride is WOW!!!  Chris and I were honestly speechless to see so many people supporting Leighton’s Gift.  Seeing, and especially hearing all of those bikes rumble as they took off in Leighton’s honor was a very emotional and unforgettable moment.

 For all the riders and everyone else who made donations, we cannot say THANK YOU enough!  The donations that we received for the ride totaled more than $6,500 and are still coming in!  Also, a very special thank you to the Turquoise Firefly for your generous donation, and providing a fantastic lunch for everyone as well as a nice air conditioned place to hang out!

This year was our first time hosting the ride, so we definitely already have a list of things we want to change and make better for next year.  Next years ride will be bigger and better!!!  We already can’t wait to see all of you again!  Tentatively, the ride is already scheduled to be on May 17, 2014!!  Mark your calendars!  If you have any questions or feedback from the ride, please feel free to email “”.  We are happy to hear from you!
