Event Description City of Richardson Corporate Challenge 9th Annual Great Ride - A motorcycle ride benefiting Special Olympics of Texas.

This year's ride will both Start and End at CityLine in Richardson. Registration begins at 7:30 a.m. with coffee, donuts and live music. Kick stands up at 9:30 a.m. While this is a group ride, it is not escorted. Riders are encouraged to go at your own pace and arrive safely back at CityLine for the festivities about 11:30 a.m. The overall ride is about 2 hours long, not quite 100 miles.

Each paid participant in the event will receive a voucher that will get them lunch from their choice of restaurant between Good Union, Char'd, and Tricky Fish.

Texas Select Beer (Non Alcoholic) will be on ice!
Vendors and Music will be on the plaza.

This is the 9th year of The Great Ride, part of the City of Richardson's Corporate Challenge. There were over 200 participants in 2018! Each participating company is asked to raise a minimum of $1,000 for Special Olympics Texas, the event's charity of choice for over 20 years. To date, the Challenge has given this organization over $2 million dollars, which has provided hundreds of Special Olympic athletes with uniforms, transportation to competitions, quality equipment and hours of practice time. The Great Ride was added as a fundraising aspect that allows anyone to participate in raising money for this great cause and have fun doing it! If you are part of the Corporate Challenge teams, be sure to select your company name for "credit" for raising money. Not part of the Corporate Challenge? No worries, all riders are welcome!

Minimum Donation - $25 per driver, $10 per passenger. (But you can always give more!)
