Freedom Ride 2016 Honors U.S. Troops

On Thursday, June 30, 2016, The Ehlerding Family of Dealerships will host their 9th Annual Freedom Ride. Hundreds of local bikers will honor America’s past and present troops and their efforts in preserving our freedom by participating in the ride.

Freedom Ride 2016 registration begins at Ehlerding’s River City Harley-Davidson / Ehlerding’s Honda/Kawasaki MotorSports in New Haven on June 30th at 5:00 pm with the thirty mile parade ride departing at 6:30 pm. The police escorted ride will travel over scenic Allen County roads, returning to the dealerships for a free post-ride Hog BBQ.

Donations will be accepted to benefit the Fort Wayne Rescue Mission, an organization that strives to “provide, through the power of Jesus Christ, a home for the homeless, food for the hungry and hope for their future.” This nonprofit serves those in need throughout Fort Wayne, Allen County and nine surrounding counties with lodging, clothing and meals as well as compassionate education and training.

All motorcyclists and those who enjoy watching motorcyclists are invited and encouraged to celebrate Freedom Ride 2016. Please join us in supporting and celebrating our American military and the freedoms they maintain for us.
