Thank you to all those that attended, participated, volunteered, and sponsored our 2019 Hooked on Healing Veterans Motorcycle Ride and made it a success!
New Year, New Adventures
We’re changing things up in 2019! We’re adding even more value, fun, and scenic views to the annual “Hooked on Healing Veterans” ride. This exciting event will take place on Saturday, February 23, 2019.
The day will start at registration with a complimentary breakfast of pancakes, sausages and coffee. If your boots are a little dusty, visit our free boot shine station, courtesy of Brian of Black Sheep boot shine. Join your host Brad Perry for raffles and a live band throughout the day. That’s not all! There will also be complimentary lunch at Desert Wind H-D courtesy of the excellent Desert Wind staff. Lastly, guests will qualify to win a new 2018 Harley-Davidson Road King by entering our Poker Run (which is included in your Registration fee). Poker Run contest rules found here.
Rather than ride around the city on surface roads, we are going to treat everyone to a scenic country ride.
From Desert Wind, head east out the #60 and then south on Hwy #79 to the River Bottom Bar in Florence. The route is a breathtaking 45-minute ride. Then it’s just a 20-minute hop, skip, and jump over to the Galloping Goose Bar & Grill in Coolidge. From the Galloping Goose, we take AZ #87 north back to Desert Wind for free lunch and festivities. Expect lots of unforgettable scenery on this pleasant 55-minute ride.
We are honored to have Brad Perry as our MC for this years event
