Motorcycles are back on the streets, and the Prince George motorcycle group wants you to keep your eyes open.
The Prince George motorcycle group is hosting it’s third annual Prince George motorcycle show and shine May 19. The event’s main goal is alerting people to the fact that motorcycles are back on the streets, and what better way to do that than load the streets full of them.
The event begins at 11 a.m. with the fallen rider ride, wherein motorcycles, starting at Pine Centre mall, drive around the city, eventually circling back to Pine Centre.
“The ride is to make the public aware that motorcycles are on the road again,” said Bruce Berry, chairman of the Prince George motorcycle group.
This is followed by motorcycles being lined up outside in the Pine Centre parking lot, by Zellers, to be judged by members of the public.
“We encourage the public to come out,” said Berry.
Registrations will be accepted from 11:30 a.m. until 1:30 p.m., at $10 an entry. Public voting will end at 3 p.m. This is followed by a meet and greet dinner at the College Heights pub, at $12 a person, and an awards ceremony also held at the College Heights pub, at 7 p.m.
Bikes will be divided into several areas of judgment, including custom and stock vintage, custom and stock cruiser, chopper, best paint, people’s choice, among others.
Last year there were around 300 votes for the 60 or so entries.
The Prince George motorcycle group consists of the alliance for injured motorcyclists, Christian motorcyclists association, Gold Wing road riders association, Harley owners group, lady riders, and vintage motorcycle association.
This is the third annual Prince George motorcycle show and shine, and the first to be held at the Pine Centre parking lot. In previous years it was held at the Canadian Tire in College Heights.
