"This is our way of saying thank you to the motorcycle community" said chapter president Harry T. Stone.

Bikers on all brands of bikes are welcome. "We want to invite all riders to join us for this fun and scenic ride and cookout" said Mr.

Chattanooga CMA Road Captain Wayne Polk will be leading the ride, which is the sixth in a series of monthly rides to expose others to the ministry of CMA and to have visitors come and enjoy a fun afternoon of motorcycle riding. The ride will return to Chattanooga in the early afternoon and is suited for all types of riders from beginners on up, according to the CMA road captain.

The ride and cookout are free to motorcyclists, and no registration is required; however, motorcycle groups of 20 or more are asked to call ahead. Hot dogs, hamburgers, chips, and soda will be served.
