13th Annual Ole’s Ride to be held on August 27th Benefitting Hospice of the Red River Valley
The 13th annual Ole’s Ride is Saturday, Aug. 27, 2022. The event is in memory of Richard “Ole” Barten, who lost his battle to cancer in February 2011.
Hospice of the Red River Valley cared for Ole during his last months, and the family wanted to use the event as a way to give back to an organization that cares for so many families in the area. All proceeds from the event benefit Hospice of the Red River Valley.
Pre-registration and a bike show will be held on Friday, August 26 from 6:30-8 p.m. at Billy’s Corner Bar in Vergas. Registration continues on Saturday from 10am – 11:30 a.m. with the ride through Minnesota lakes country leaving at 12pm on Saturday, August 27.
The cost is $25 per bike, $15 for an additional rider, and includes a T-shirt, meal and chances at door prizes at each stop. A meal, silent auction and live music by Fat Cats follow the ride.
