The Long Reach Long Riders route for their 17th annual charity motorcycle ride  A River Runs Through It — travels through 4 states around the upper Midwest, with route highlights in and around the area known as “the Driftless,” a unique geological feature not affected by glaciers in the last ice age. The route also features many sweeping roads around hills and bluffs in Wisconsin and Iowa, the wooded forests of Minnesota, and travels along the deep incision of the Mississippi River.

The ride begins in St. Paul on Saturday, June 20 and ends on July 27. Ride Marshalls this year will be Paul “Rev” and Peggy “Clutch” Sannarud.  “Most folks think the upper Midwest is flat farmland,” noted Paul, "but those who know about the land shaped by the ‘Mighty Miss’ know better.” Peggy added, “This year’s ride is a great opportunity for our Midwest colleagues in the industry to join up with us to raise money for two very worthy charities.”

The Long Reach Long Riders have been raising money for Broadway Cares/Equity Fights AIDS and the Behind the Scenes Foundation since 2004.

Bill Sapsis, one of the founding members remarked, “If you were thinking about joining up with the Long Riders, this is the year for you to join the cause.”
