Prairies To Penguins Alberta to Argentina Send off event

Well it's been three years of planning and now the big day is only two weeks away. I am taking 6 months and riding from St. Albert to Ushuaia Argentina!!



I would love to have all of you who can make it join me for a short little ride as I head west out of the city. Normally I'm pretty shy and don't like the spotlight but this is also about a fundraiser for Spinal Cord Injury Research. So we're making my departure something of an event hosted by Riverside Motosports.
The ride will be about 45 minutes out to Onoway via hwy 37 (paved so all bikes can partake). Here's the official blurb...

Prairies To Penguins
Ride-Out from Riverside August 24!
Come on out to Riverside Motosports in St.Albert to see me off.
BBQ, Music, Prizes and much more! Cheque presentation to Spinal Cord Injury Treatment Centre.
Bring your motorcycle and be a part of a group ride to escort me on my way!
Saturday August 24 -10:00-11:30 AM
Escorted Group Ride to Onoway wheels rolling at 11:30am.
More details soon follow me on TWITTER and FACEBOOK or check out the BLOG

Hope to see a bunch of you there!!

Dave

Despite my jealousy that you get to do this and my life simply isn't in that place just yet, I'll be there.

Have fun, stay safe.

Spread the Word

Hey all y'all, we need your support.
BBQ, prizes, group ride.
Lets get as many bikes out to Riverside in St. Albert as we can.
Give all your biker buddies a call and let them know. You won't regret it.

I'll be riding through Rocky Mountain House and on to Golden via the Icefields parkway. I'd love to have anyone join me along the way even if they're Calgarians
Just kidding I'm originally from Calgary

By the way check out the Calgary Herald Story Greg Williams wrote about my ride.
