In The Beginning...

A group of nine riders and friends helped to start an organization while relaxing after a motorcycle ride at our local Tim Horton's. We were just sitting around and thought it would be a great idea to form a group of motorcycle riders. These motorcycle rides would benefit charities, but also would allow us to do a lot of riding. We wanted to provide a safe and social riding atmosphere for all riders no matter what they rode, whether or not they are seasoned riders or new riders.

So the Original Nine was formed and we called ourselves Canadian Legion of Riders.


December 14, 2006 The Original Nine officially signed as members of the Canadian Legion of Riders.

 

Ride for a Vet

Bernie Levasseur with the help of friends Don Bush, Glenn Kulyk and Jim Giefer helped organize the first annual 'Ride for A Vet'.  In 2002 the donation was made to the Boys and Girls Club. The following  consecutive years our support went to the Legion with the cause being VETERANS UNMARKED GRAVES. Thousands of dollars were donated towards the said cause. This has been an ongoing event till this date. In 2006 the newly formed CANADIAN LEGION of RIDERS came to life and are now continuing to hold the RIDE FOR A VET charity poker run.
