About 50 motorcyclists cruised into Spunky’s Motorcycle Shop in Parksville on Saturday for the 3rd Annual Military Police National Motorcycle Relay Ride.

The ride began July 16 in St. John’s Newfoundland and the final B.C. leg ended in Comox.

Lamont French is the co-national chair and the B.C. ride captain and led the B.C. portion of the ride from Jasper, Alberta to Vancouver, and then over to Vicoria on August 21, finishing up in Comox Aug 27.

Those who joined the ride paid or raised money for the Military Police Fund for Blind Children and the Children’s Wish Foundation of Canada. Riders also collected donations along the way. French is hoping to raise $10,000 to $15,000 in B.C.

People can still donate by emailing lamontfrench@shaw.ca or by calling 250-590-4590.
