Prince Brothers’ Memorial Motorcycle Ride August 11th

The weather is looking good for “Rumble in the Streets” — a police-escorted motorcycle ride and Classic Car Cruise-In to benefit the Griffin & Jake Prince Memorial Fund — on Saturday, August 11, 2012.

Griffin & Jake are the brothers who perished in a boating accident on Lake Lanier in June, 2012.

The 70-mile motorcycle ride is scheduled for Saturday, August 11th, with a rain-date of Saturday, September 1st.

Riders are asked to assemble in Dahlonega at the Lumpkin County Courthouse (325 Riley Road, Dahlonega, GA,  30533) beginning at 9 AM.  There will be a pre-ride meeting at 11 AM, with “kickstands up” at 11:15.

Sheriff escorts from Dawson, Lumpkin, Forsyth and Hall counties will lead the motorcyclists and halt cross-traffic at stoplights and major intersections.

There are few things motorcyclists enjoy more than waving to smiling law enforcement officers while we legally ride our bikes through red lights with hundreds of other bikers.

A classic car show will be held from 1 PM until 4 PM at Dawsonville’s City Hall, where the ride ends.

All proceeds of this memorial ride will go to the Griffin & Jake Prince Memorial Fund.

We will see you there!
