Scenic Motorcycle Tour for Charity Raises More Money for Pediatric Brain Tumor Foundation
Moorpark, CA (May 21, 2018) – The Fourth Invitational WHY WE RIDE to the Quail charity trek is in the books and went down as an unmitigated success—it drew more riders and raised more money than any of its previous iterations.
The ride, which took place on May 3, 4 and 5, began in historic Moorpark, proceeded to picturesque Pismo Beach, CA, then moved into the wooded hillsides and gorgeous valleys of Paso Robles wine country. Over 80 riders thundered along the most seductive canyon roads in California, arriving at the beaches of Monterey in time for The Quail Motorcycle Gathering. All proceeds raised went to the Pediatric Brain Tumor Foundation.
