The 22nd annual Riding to Remember motorcycle ride will take place this Sunday, September 13.

The 72-mile police escorted motorcycle ride is meant to remember fallen police, firefighters and veterans.

The ride will begin in Elkhart, then travel through Wakarusa, Nappanee, Goshen, Middlebury and Bristol before returning to Elkhart. Citizens are encouraged to line the route to show their support. The route schedule can be seen below.

This year, Riding to Remember will once again benefit an ongoing initiative to build tiny homes in Elkhart County for homeless citizens, with priority to shelter veterans, children and the elderly.

  1. Gather when your told to but not when you want to…Typical government B.S. Not even a single mention of masks or social distancing but at the same time the local news is telling us all how to “conform” for the ND game this weekend by wearing masks, staying outside and social distancing. Oh and be sure not too many people in your back yard and don’t let anyone in your house…These people are mindless!
