The 7th Annual Patriot Ride is hosted by the Pepperell 4th of July Committee and will be a socially distance bike run.
This is an abbreviated ride, no bands, no raffles, thus giving everyone a chance to do what they love to do, riding for a cause.
Please note: The VFW is closed!! We are just lining up in the parking lot and will enforce social distancing and masks. Waiver forms required at check in.
About the Patriot Ride:
The starting point is at the Pepperell VFW Post 3291 and the ride will run about 2 hours with a pit stop at Kimball's Farm in Jaffrey, NH. Donations for the ride are $20.00 per Rider and $10.00 per Passenger. T-shirts available by pre-order.
This ride helps support the Pepperell 4th of July Committee events and fundraisers that are run throughout the year. All donations go towards Pepperell 4th of July celebration planning, and includes special fundraising events run 100% by volunteers, all designed to bring the community together and to bring you the best Parade & Fireworks in the area! We could not do it without your help.
On Feb.28th we lost a pillar of our community in retired Pepperell PD. SGT. and Selectman William Greathead. The loss has shocked the community and family alike. We are going to Dedicate this year's ride in his Memory. He was also a fellow rider and enjoyed riding his HD. He will be greatly missed by all who knew him.
