Motorcyclists Get in First Ride of the Year
Twenty riders braved the cold for bragging rights and a good cause on Tuesday morning.
The Xtreme Riders Cold Run saw 20 riders brave the cold for bragging rights and to help raise money for fallen riders.
Temperatures hovered around 35 degrees — with wind chills dipping down to 25 degrees — when 20 riders rolled out of Framingham on their way to Marlborough.
"There were many patches of snow and ice on the roads, but all the riders had a fun and safe ride," said said Xtreme Riders President Kevin "Blade" Corey who has been organizing the event since 2000 with his Vice President Robin “Jive” Welch. "There was beautiful scenery of farms and orchards covered with bright snow."
The ride ended at the Lazy Dog in Marlborough, where about 100 people who drove there awaited the bikes. They enjoyed a fundraiser buffet and live music along with raffles.
Many presale tickets were sold for the organizations next charity event. The Xtreme Riders are having a benefit June 2 at the Hudson Elks, to help fallen and injured bikers.
The event is called T's Ride in honor of Anthony Fasulo, who died in a crash May 1 of 2012 on his motorcycle. All proceeds go directly to the Massachusetts Motorcyclists Survivor Fund.
