Officer Down Ride

April 16th 2011

Wilmington, NC


Debbie and I rode in this in 2009 and had an absolute blast. Like last time, we plan to make a long weekend of it and hang out in Wrightsville Beach.  We plan to leave New Bern around 10:30 or so on the 15th (Friday) and grab lunch in Jacksonville, then head on to Wrightsville Beach.  Just let us know if anyone wants to ride down together.

Here’s the link to our entry in 2009:

2011 Ride

The 6th Annual Officer Down Ride is a dice ride to benefit the Officer Down Fund. It will take place on Saturday, April 16, 2011. Registration begins at 9 am and small groups will be leaving every 15 minutes.

This year’s ride will begin at Carolina Coast Harley-Davidson®/Buell®, 6620 Market Street in Wilmington, and end at Beach House Harley-Davidson®, 4919 Ocean Highway in Shallotte. The route is posted on the Harley-Davidson® Ride Planner.

Festivities for participants will include:

  • Dice ride
  • BBQ lunch by Musser’s
  • Music
  • Special guest speaker Trot Nixon
  • Trivia game
  • 50/50
  • “No Class” Bike Show: a viewer’s choice winner-take-all bike show. There are no classes and no judges; we’ll place a bucket in front of each bike, and the bike that raises the most cash wins. (So tell all your friends!) All proceeds go to the Officer Down Fund.
  • Custom event hat
  • Patches and past years’ merchandise available for purchase

There is a $30 donation per bike. This will include the ride and dice game, lunch, entry to the trivia game and “No Class” Bike Show, and a custom event hat. Passengers may donate $10 to ride along and eat lunch only, or $30 to eat, participate in games, and receive their hat.


We hope to see you there!!
