Wilbarger Co. Breast Cancer Fun Ride

The second annual Wilbarger County Breast Cancer Fun Ride is quickly approaching! This year's ride will be in the memory of Rhonda Rozzell.

The motorcycle ride will begin and end Saturday, October 5 in Vernon. The starting location is 1630 Hillcrest Drive, 76384.

Registration begins at 9 a.m. Kickstands will be up at 10 a.m.

Participants will take part in a 2.5 hour ride through the North Texas rural countryside. Riders will make four stops along the route. The route will take riders through Waggoner Ranch, the largest single family-owned ranch in the state of Texas.

The route will continue into Wichita County, and through Electra. Electra is named after Mr. Waggoner's daughter.

From there, participants will head back into Wilbarger country, riding through the ghost towns of Fargo and White City.

Riders will see the small town of Chillicothe, once in Hardeman County, and from there, continue to Farmers Valley, a ghost town in Wilbarger County. The ride will end at the Bank of the West in Vernon.

Following the fun ride, lunch will be provided to all riders. Music will also be provided.

A "People's Choice" Bike Show will also take place. It is expected to begin at 2 p.m. and wrap up at 4 p.m.

All money raised from the event will go toward the Wilbarger County Relay For Life goal.
