The Texas Rangers are holding their 2nd Annual Operation Backpack Ride on Sunday, August 1 and all motorcycle makes and models are invited and welcome!
The meeting venue for the ride is the Youth Ballpark which is just north and across the street from The Rangers Ballpark in Arlington. The mission for Operation Backpack is to raise much needed school supplies for area children….think of it like a toy run but the temperatures are a bit warmer and backpacks full of school supplies will be strapped to the bikes instead of big fluffy teddy bears.
Beginning at 9a on Sunday, August 1, the first 75 people who donate $20 toward Operation Backpack will have the opportunity to ride around the warming track on their motorcycle at the Rangers Ballpark. The warming track is the dark red gravel-like track that surrounds the field. It’s a quite a treat to listen to the sound of the pipes in an environment like that and be able to take a memorable photo of your bike on the field!
The ride is scheduled for KSU (kickstands up) at 12p Noon from the Youth Ballpark.
The ride will travel to Stroker’s Dallas where there will be live entertainment, raffle items, and a bike show with awards for several categories.
Make plans to join in the fun as area kids are given the much needed school supplies they need to do their best in class!
