Central Carolina Cruzzz

March 19, 2005

On Saturday, March 19th, 45 riders from the central North Carolina area rode in the first annual Central Carolina Cruzzzz. This ride was hosted by the Chatham Chapter of the Concerned Bikers Association of NC. 45 riders purchased 55 tickets in Apex, NC at the start of the ride and then rode approximately 90 miles to Hometown BBQ for a lunch stop in Troy, NC. Ten door prizes were drawn and $50 in cash prizes were awarded. The ride then traveled back to Apex and ended at the Little Bar.

Chatham CBA would like to thank the Jordan Lake chapter, Greater Raleigh and Southern Raleigh chapters of the Southern Cruisers Riding Club, the NC Retreads, the CMA, Tri-County Bikers, Raleigh CBA, Davidson County CBA, and many independent riders for their participation. We had beautiful weather and enjoyed meeting new friends.

$500 was raised by the riders. The Chatham CBA will use these donations to fund lobbying efforts for fair motorcycle related legislation and to help fund the CBA's Motorcycle Safety and Awareness Program (MSAP). The MSAP provides "Share the Road" training to high school students in drivers education classes. The Chatham CBA also supports the Motorcycle Riders Foundation (MRF) at the federal level by retaining a MRF annual chapter sustaining membership.

The Chatham County CBA is proud to be part of the largest and most successful state motorcyclists rights organization (SMRO) in North Carolina and we encourage all motorcyclists to become educated on the public affairs that effect motorcycling. For more information on the many issues facing motorcyclists today, please become politically aware by joining the MRF at the federal level and the CBA at the state level. MRO memberships can complement your memberships in riding clubs.  You may also learn more about the current issues facing North Carolina's bikers by reviewing the monthly Legislative Update Page at: http://www.ncrider.com/Legislative-updates.htm
