Ride With a Buddy

Scroll down for registration information.
Event Description - Ride With a Buddy is a special event at Hope Fest. The Blue Knights Law Enforcement Motorcycle Club (LEMC) of Wisconsin II lead the ride. Individuals with a motorcycle or antique car "buddy up" with a survivor or their family member whose life has been touched by Alzheimer's, cancer, diabetes, heart disease, seizure disorder, or any other life-limiting illness or condition.
The goal of the ride is to give people of all ages, who are touched by illness, a great ride on the back of a motorcycle, in a sidecar, on a 'trike' (3-wheeled motorcycle), or in a classic car. Tomorrow's Hope, the organizer of Hope Fest, urges survivors, individuals or family members whose life has been turned upside down by life-limiting illness to sign up for the ride of a lifetime! It's easy. Ask someone you know with a motorcycle or classic car to be your 'buddy' or call 920-674-8967 to be paired up with a driver and experience a fantastic FREE ride on a motorcycle or in an antique car during the Ride With a Buddy event.
The ride is open to all motorcycles, as well as classic and collectible cars. The 40-mile ride, which takes about an hour, winds through Jefferson County driven at a leisurely pace. Upon returning to Jefferson, participants will parade through town to the Jefferson County Fair Park where they will be greeted by an estimated 2,000 people.
