preride brief

Well, there aren't many words to describe the TROOPER CHAD LECROY MEMORIAL RIDE held on Saturday, March 12th in Atlanta, Georgia.  The one word that comes to mind is "WOW" and, in this case, less is more.  

 

 

Registration
Planned by a local Motorcycle Club to honor this Trooper slain in the line of duty, it was attended by riders from a variety of motorcycle and riding clubs all over the southeast. As members of the Lake Blue Ridge Chapter of the Southern Cruisers Riding Club, we were proud to ride in support of this cause and represent the SCRC.

Bikes

 

 

 It is highly likely that this event set a record for the number of riders/chapters representing the State Of Georgia SCRC for a single charity event with approximately 195 bikes representing 25 of the 31 Georgia SCRC Chapters.  There were over 700 bikes making the ride, made up of clubs of all types; however, by far, the SCRC had the strongest showing.

 

 

The Cruisers started the day with a 9:45 am KSU (motorcycle slang for Kick Stands Up) in Austell.  We were then escorted by GA State Patrol Motor cops to the Georgia State Patrol Post adjacent to Fulton County Airport. The entrance of a couple hundred Cruisers pulling up to the Patrol Post was no less than awesome. Hey - WE’RE HERE!!!!

 

Escorted by Atlanta Police Motor Cops, Georgia State Patrol Motor Cops, a dozen or so marked Georgia State Troopers, as well as a few Fulton County Sheriffs patrol cars, the trip to the City of Suwanee took the long way around Atlanta. It seems that the escorts took every opportunity to demonstrate to the pubInterstatelic the support that we proudly were showing to them. From rolling road blocks to simply shutting down the entire interstate, the pace varied between barely moving at times, and then quickly roaring to break-neck speeds for miles and miles.Get the vision of 700-plus bikes, staggered formation, 3 miles in length, cars stopped at nearly every ramp and overpass, as we alternated between throttles twisted wide open to grabbing your brakes, hard, HARDERRRRR, for an hour and a half.

 

Wild Wings

This awesome ride ended at Wild Wings Cafe in Suwanee.   The procession of bikes coming into the parking lot - two by two - took a full 10 minutes.  It was incredible.   And incredibly rewarding.

 



If you're saying to yourself "man, sounds like an awesome ride", you're right. A great and very just cause, an absolutely exhilarating ride with extraordinary people.  In the end, over $10,000 was raised for the Chad Lecroy Family Memorial Fund.

 

If, like us, you love to hop on your motorcycle and feel the breeze on your knees you will truly understand this.
