A new motorcycle event for charity is set to go this weekend.
The Lion's Tail Inaugural Ride for Charity on Saturday, June 22nd will raise money for school breakfast programs on the Bruce Peninsula.
Lion's Tail tour founder Dan Cassel is a motorcycle enthusiast who has created a scenic tourism route called "The Lion's Tail" which is mapped out to take bikers on a tour of the Bruce Peninsula.
"Any street legal vehicle," says Cassel, not just motorcycles, is encouraged on the Lion's Tail route. Cassel says it's also great for RVs.
He's chosen bike-friendly paved roads that take riders past the Lion's Head Lighthouse, the Bruce Trail, Lion's Head Beach, The Kemble Women's Institute Lookout, Sauble Falls and Sauble Beach, The Grotto, national and provincial parks, and the Devil's Monument Loop.
Cassel says the June 22nd charity ride event, which is a shorter version of the Lion's Tail route goes 'rain or shine.'
It will take riders and drivers down Bruce County Road 9 through Wiarton, along Grey Road 1, back through Shallow Lake, Sauble Beach, Red Bay, Pike Bay and then onto Highway 6 south back into Wiarton's Bluewater Park for about 3 p.m. where there will be vendors and activities.
Registration starts at the Lion's Head Beach Motel at 9 a.m. The ride itself begins at 11 and wraps up at about 3 p.m.
Online pre-registration is encouraged.
Donations to local school breakfast clubs are optional, but Cassel says they're encouraged.
