We’re getting ready for another ride. This Saturday, September 19th, we’ll participate in the 9th Annual Blaze Coffee benefit Ride. This ride is hosted by The Panhandle Wild Hogs from Panhandle, Tx. Registration and the start of the ride are at the Carson County Ag Barn, 814 E. 3rd Street, Panhandle, Tx. with lunch, raffles, and prize drawings held at about noon back at the Ag Barn.
The route will be to leave the Carson County Ag Barn with the 1st stop being Clint & Sons Custom Processing in White Deer, Tx., then on to the Hobart Street Park near the animal shelter in Pampa, Tx. From there to Antelope Creek Leather in Borger, Tx. and finally back to the Ag Barn in Panhandle. The ride is about 90 miles, round-trip.
The ride is in memory of Blaze Coffee who passed at the young age of 20 due to complications from a serious industrial accident. As mentioned earlier, it is put on by the Panhandle Wild Hogs and 100% of the proceeds go to Coffee Memorial Blood Center to help with a new bloodmobile.
The last time I rode this ride was in September of 2009 with a friend riding double with me on my 2007 Road King Classic. The ride was good and the people we met were very nice.
We’re going with a larger group this year, so we’ll see how that works out. The prizes, or swag, this year are the t-shirt (pictured at the top, center), a can Koozie and, of course the 2-hot dog & chips sack lunch. (Sack lunch this year due to CoVid-19, so there’s not people leaning over a serving table and touching the meat tongs and ladels)… Thank you very much, China and your durned virus. More to report after the ride…
