Grand Master's Motorcycle Rides for Hope Lodge

Each participant will also need to sign the release form.  Sign that and send it along with your registration form.  Registration will also be available at the ride kickoff.  However, advance registration is requested so we will know how much food will be required and how many group leaders we will need to arrange.
