Legends Ride Attracts Hundreds At Sturgis Rally
The Sturgis Motorcycle Rally is one of the
most popular events in the motorsports world, but this
huge multi-day festival has a few traditions that are more
anticipated than others. One of the most beloved segments of the
rally is the Legends Ride, which aims to bring all motorcycle riders
together for a good cause.
This year's ride, which took place Aug. 5, saw hundreds of riders make the trek from Deadwood, S.D., to the Buffalo Chip Campground. Motorcycle.com reports that the 2013 running was likely the biggest in the event's short history, with more than 400 people participating and thousands of dollars raised for charity.
"It almost looks like a party," Buffalo Chip President Rod Woodruff told the Rapid City Journal. "It just gets bigger, better and more successful every year ... The Legends Ride is all about the people. The bottom line is it's a great ride for a good cause with a bunch of giving people."
After the 25-mile journey, riders were treated to a concert by Kid Rock - just one of the many musical guests scheduled for the rally - as well as a display of custom motorcycles.
