24th Annual MLA Ride
April 30, 2015 @ 8:00 am - 3:00 pm
All MLA’s and their staff are invited to attend the 24th Annual MLA Ride on Thursday, April 30th, 2015
The MLA Ride is a motorcycle ride to the Legislature Buildings put on by the B.C. Coalition of Motorcyclists. Riders attending this ride will arrive at the Legislature at NOON to take the MLA’s and their staff for a short group ride on their lunch hour so that they can experience the thrill of motorcycling firsthand. This ride enables our members to discuss issues concerning motorcycling in B.C. with their MLA and is also the big kick off to help promote May as Motorcycle Awareness Month. This is a very important message for the motorcycling community to remind drivers to look twice because a lot more motorcycles are back on the road starting May 1st.
If any of the MLA’s or staff are motorcyclists or would like to be a part of the ride up to the Legislature they are welcome to meet up with the riders beforehand at one of our meeting points, which are: Tsawwassen Ferry Terminal for the 9:00 AM sailing and Mayfair Mall on Blanshard Street in Victoria at 11:00 AM.
If any of the MLA’s or staff are not comfortable going for a ride that very understandable and we would love for them to come out and just meet some of their constituents, even if they choose not to participate in the ride itself.
It is suggested that anyone participating in the ride wear proper riding attire that day, which would include closed toe shoes, slacks, and a leather or jean jacket if available Please bring you D.O.T. approved helmets and if you have an extra helmet for your MLA passenger please bring it along.. And if any of the MLA’s are riders they are more than welcome to show up on their own bikes with their own gear.
Island BMW has generously offered to host us again for a BBQ afterwards! More news to follow!
