4th Annual West Virginia Motorcycle Safety Program Bridge Day Ride

On October 15, 2011, the West Virginia Motorcycle Safety Program will sponsor the 4th Annual crossing of the New River Gorge Bridge on Bridge Day.   This ride is to promote awareness of motorcycles, safe riding and safe interaction with other motor vehicles while traveling West Virginia highways.

4th Annual Bridge Day Safety Ride

The ride has been approved by the Bridge Day Commission for 50 motorcycles. The ride will meet at the former Songer Whitewater location at 3069 Miller Ridge Road in Hico, WV at 9am for registration confirmation. Arrive early for check –in.  The ride will leave at 10am (sharp) and cross the New River Gorge Bridge, turn on Rt. 16 North to Rt. 60 East, then back to Rt. 19. We will have a police escort across the bridge and law enforcement help at all major intersections to facilitate our ride. Once riders reach Rt. 19, they may return to the starting point or turn south to enjoy the festivities at the bridge. Designated motorcycle parking will be available near the bridge.

Due to safety concerns, prior registration is required and background checks will be done on all riders and passengers. No riders or passengers will be allowed on the ride without prior registration.

Registration is now open and closes on August 31, 2011. No registrations after the deadline will be accepted.
