Due to the Chetco Bar Fire's proximity to our riding location as well as the Event Center being used for the emergency crews, the Joe Martin Memorial Ride will be postponed until a later date. Please keep checking back here and on our Facebook Page for updates.
We also encourage you donate to local organizations to help those who have been displaced and have lost their homes in the terrible tragedy.
Thank you for your understanding.
