2014 Ride for Kids

The public is invited to join the Honda Supercross and GNCC Red Riders to celebrate the start of Daytona Bike Week on March 7.

Honda racing stars Justin Barcia, Trey Canard, Eli Tomac, Wil Hahn, Blake Wharton, Matt Bisceglia, Justin Bogle, Malcolm Stewart, Johnny Campbell and Chris Bach will be at Honda’s kickoff party that night signing autographs for a $5 donation to the Pediatric Brain Tumor Foundation.

The riders will also donate autographed jerseys and riding apparel in support of the cause. American Honda is the presenting sponsor of the PBTF’s Ride for Kids program.

The event will be held from 6 to 8 p.m. in Honda’s main display tent, located this year outside of turn four of Daytona International Speedway. Snacks and water will be provided to the first 300 guests, along with Muscle Milk drink samples and Team Honda Muscle Milk stickers.

The Honda tent will also showcase this year’s Cycle World/Ride for Kids project bike, donated by American Honda to benefit the Pediatric Brain Tumor Foundation. The 2013 CBR1000RR was customized by Len Higa and features parts and accessories donated by Dunlop, Leo Vince, Airtech and other generous companies.

Drawing tickets for the project bike are just one for $5 or five for $20. No purchase is required to win. Tickets are also available online. See the Official Rules for details.
