You do not have to own a motorcycle to support this ride. “All bikes, trikes, cars and trucks are welcome. This will be a Rain or Shine event,” he said.

“We would like to thank everyone in advance and encourage everyone to come out and support all events this time of year that are being held to help the less fortunate in Milam County,” said Starr.
