Welcome to the sixth annual ORIGINAL Combat Veterans Motorcycle Association Benefit Ride. This is an OPEN RIDE! All are welcome. You DO NOT have to be a Veteran to join us.

The ride will depart CROSSROAD HARLEY DAVIDSON, WILKESBORO, NC. WWW.CROSSROAD-HD.COM at 1 PM sharp on the 3rd OF MAY. Sign up will start at 1000 AM. The ride is a police escorted ride. The ride is approximately 52 miles. It will end at RIVER CITY BAR & GRILL, Mooresville.
THE FEE FOR A SINGLE $20 OR TWO UP THIS YEAR WILL BE $25. EVEN IF YOU DON'T RIDE IN THE RIDE AND JUST SHOW UP AT RIVER CITY YOU WILL BE ASKED TO PAY AN ADMITTANCE FEE. PLEASE REMEMBER, WE ARE TRYING TO RAISE MONEY TO HELP OUR COMBAT WOUNDED!
This ride's sole purpose has many Veteran beneficiaries: To name a few that this ride has benefited in the past: The Fisher House of NC, Purple Heart Homes, Project Rover, Project Healing Waters, Project Healing Hunt, Welcome Home Vets and several individual veterans in need.
Another of the beneficiaries will be any Combat Wounded Solider who is in dire straits awaiting government assistance. IE..immediate need of a wheelchair ramp, assistance in paying power bill, water bill, etc. Short term help to get over the "hump."

We are an Association of Combat Veterans from all branches of the United States Armed Forces who ride motorcycles as a hobby. Our mission now is to support and defend those who have defended our country and our freedoms. Our focus is to help veteran care facilities provide a warm meal, clothing, shelter, and guidance, or simply to say "Thank You." and "Welcome Home."
Our membership is comprised of Full Members ( those with verified combat service ) and Supporter Members ( those who have non-combat military service, and have a sincere dedication to helping veterans ). We have members from nearly all 50 states and living abroad. Many members continue to serve in our Armed Forces, with several serving in combat areas now.
We sponsor and/or participate in many motorcycle-related charity events each year, and as a non-profit organization, donate to various veteran care facilities and veteran charities.
