Other 2019 Events

September 14, 2019 – Ride Like an Animal Motorcycle Benefit Ride – What a beautiful day, although a big on the hot and muggy side for September!  We had 65 bikes join us for 90-mile ride through Union, Claiborne, and Grainger Counties.  Police escorts in the front and rear, along with a support vehicle – all of which were much appreciated.  Fun times, more prize drawings, and an auction were held at the end of the ride at Bubba Brews!  Thank you to all the riders and the support team who made for another successful fundraiser.  We’ll do it again in September 2020.
