The event offers something for the whole family: a motorcycle ride, a food truck competition, live music, great food, kids activities, and more.

Ride registration begins at 9 a.m. and motorcycles will depart at 10 a.m. for a ride through the north country.

Riders will enjoy a journey through some of the most beautiful views Oswego County has to offer with a stop at FX Caprara for refreshments.

The day wouldn’t be complete without live music from local musicians.

Musicians include Bryan Syrell and Oswego’s classic rock band Off the Reservation.

BBQ will be served from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m.

There will be a food truck competition starting at 9 a.m., which costs $10 to participate.

The vendors’ exhibit and children’s activity area will open at 10 a.m.

This event provides a chance for the whole community to come together and shine as we take care of neighbors in need. Funding raised through the event will be used for people in Oswego County who cannot afford a ramp.

Your support for this event makes it possible for people to remain at home and not be forced into a nursing home.

It also means that people can come home from rehab or the hospital in a much quicker time frame.

ARISE and Ride for Ramps allows people with disabilities to return to their community and feel hopeful once again as they rejoin their families to live in dignity.

We hope that you’ll share this day with us. Come be part of “our” family and in turn let’s give independence to our neighbors and their families.
