This is a multi-community event and is a fundraiser for the La Honda Volunteer Fire Department. These are the same wonderful volunteers that pick us up and help us when we crash in the area!!!

The event is geared to riding skills and to your survival as a motorcyclist!  Dr. Harry Wong, chiropractor in Redwood City who hosts the very popular "Doc Wong Free Riding Clinics" and the La Honda Volunteer Fire Department have gotten together to create an awesome event.

There will even be a "Meet the Man" session where we can get to know the the local Sheriff and them to get to know us!  Also we'll be able to talk to many of the volunteers for the La Honda Fire Department.  This get to know each other time can foster much more cooperation and help for all involved!

The spark that ignited this was due to the ongoing desire of two people from very different walks of life to improve motorcycle safety, Dr. Harry Wong, chiropractor who practices in Redwood City and Larry Whitley the captain of the La Honda Volunteer Fire Department.  Doc Wong has been holding free riding clinics in the area for the last 7 years and has been very active in the motorcycling community.  Larry Whitley as a volunteer fireman has been the first responder at the scene of many motorcycle accidents over the years.  Many riders are totally unaware of the ongoing efforts of these well trained volunteers who are there when we need them.

Larry has commented that he's amazed that the feedback has been so positive in support for this event from residents and other agencies. 

So the goal of the event is to have a great time and foster understanding between all involved and to gain knowledge that would enhance our enjoyment of motorcycling by improving our skills and gaining knowledge that would help us survive out on the roads!

The cost is free and all are welcome!

If you have a bike that you'd like to show, e-mail Dr. Wong for entry information.
