Houston Ride for Kids pedaling into Humble

April 24, 2013 by  

The Ride for Life motorcycle event will take place in Humble this weekend, beginning at the Humble Civic Center and Arena.

The Ride for Kids program consists of a series of motorcycle rides across the nation supporting the Pediatric Brain Tumor Foundation. The organization’s mission is to provide medical funding for research and to support for the families afflicted.

The route varies among different locations but generally is between 40 and 50 miles long and takes between an hour and an hour and a half to complete.

Participants can ride single or double, as well as on teams, but very entry should have an appointed captain. Often, local motorcycle clubs will ride together. Each rider and passenger must wear required safety gear, including a DOT-approved helmet. Glasses or a face shield are highly recommended in addition to gloves, a long-sleeved jacket, and boots. Long pants are advisable in preference to shorts.

Print companies typically are active in producing materials for events of this nature. Banner printing is a primary order, as the banners are used throughout the route to direct the riders appropriately. Flyer printing is also a necessary step in marketing large events for the purpose of attracting participants and spectators.

The Ride for Kids website has more information on all scheduled events in Humble, including this one. Registration information and forms can be found at the site as well. Questions should be directed to representatives at 800-253-6530.

The ride gets going this Sunday April 28.
