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.
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
