This will be a SLOW organized ride, all riders and motorcycles welcome. We will ride from the meet spot to the site of the accident where we will stay for 15-20 minutes to reflect, share a short story or say a prayer and give a short engine rev for Claudia. From there we will continue on as a group to the Hopewell Funeral Home. The total ride time is only 30 mins / 15 miles.
There will be parking set up just for the motorcycles, while we go inside, have a seat in a designated area, and pay our respects. The funeral director will let us know when we should return to our motorcycles and line up to lead the procession to the grave site ( right next door – Police Officers will direct), please do not leave before that, the family would love to see a large group of bikers lead Claudia’s coach from this point. From there we will park momentarily while the family arrives and we hear the final words from the Director.
Since Claudia loved GirlRiders, this ride will be no different, please respect our rules for wearing protective gear.
Whether Claudia was a close friend, a riding buddy or you are attending to support the community and a fallen rider; the family is extremely grateful for the outpouring of love and support and so is GirlRiders. Thank you for representing her light, her life and her love for riding.
