North Coast Motorcycle Safety Ride set for May 19

The Seventh Annual North Coast Motorcycle Safety Ride will be held beginning at 10 a.m. on Saturday, May 19.  This year, the safety ride will include Ashtabula, Geauga, Lake, Mahoning, and Trumbull counties.

Riders can register the day of the ride at each starting point from 10 a.m. to 11 a.m. Both groups will depart at 11 a.m. from their respective starting points.

The safety ride was started in 2005 after 10 motorcyclists were killed in Ashtabula County. The ride was designed to promote motorcycle safety and awareness. The safety ride is the result of a partnership between The Ohio State Highway Patrol, Motorcycle Ohio, Safe Communities, and University Hospitals.  Proceeds benefit Safe Communities in all five counties.

This year, the ride will feature two starting points, one at the Ashtabula County Fair Grounds, and the other at Bike Town Harley Davidson in Mahoning County. Both groups will meet at the Parkman Community Center, located in Geauga County.  All riders will then return to the Cortland Moose and Family Center for festivities, safety displays, and food.  The entire ride will be escorted by State Troopers and local law enforcement officers.
