Saints MC of Cullman, Al. 4th Annual Miracle League Ride

Written by  July 1, 2020

  We've all been experiencing a little bit of "cabin fever" with the Covid-19 shut down, but now things are slowly starting to re-open, people are coming out of hibernation and some of the rides that had to be rescheduled are starting to take place, still others that unfortunately just had to be canceled for this year.  

  On Saturday, June the 13th, one of the more fortunate rides that were able to reschedule was the Saints MC of Cullman Alabama Miracle League Ride. Between them and the Friends of the Miracle League, they were able to pull together a pretty big ride for the riders to get back in the groove on, also a pretty important ride as the biker community all rally together for those amazing athletes from the Miracle League.

 

  The organizer from the Saints MC, Brandi Story Evens, is mother to one of those exceptional athletes, Jacob, who along with being one of the Miracle League stars is also an honorary member of the Saints MC. 

  What better way to get back in the saddle than to have a couple hundred bikes roll out in support of such a worthy cause. Sure the bikers have been able to ride through the Covid-19 shut down but only alone or in very small groups, and if you know anything at all about the biker community, you know that's just not how we roll 

 "This is the 4th year for the Saints Miracle League Ride, we weren't even sure it was going to happen due to the Covid-19 closing everything down and folks being out of work, but we thought; we've gotta give it a try, and it turned out that everyone was ready to ride! I usually start coordinating things pretty early on but not this time. I think we did everything in just a couple of months. We decided on a different strategy by setting up a "Go Fund Me" page just in case things didn't work out and it did really well, then low and behold, everything just kinda fell into place. Seems like everyone got on board.

  The coordinator for the Miracle League, with the Cullman Park and Recreations wanted to help get the word out and show everyone how much the Saints MC do for the Miracle League every year. She had the local newspapers and radio stations involved and of course, Cycle Connections was here to cover the event again this year along with several new sponsors that had been added to this years line up.

    On Saturday, June the 13th the first big run of the year began to roll in to the Cullman Elks Lodge as they played host once again for registration.

The Miracle League players were the first stop on the ride, they were all lined up around the parking lot at the Miracle Field, holding up banners, waving and cheering for all the bikers as they rode through. I'm sure the riders enjoyed seeing them as much as the players enjoyed all the bikes. They lost a few at this first stop as a couple of the bikes had an oil leak.

  The ride went on to Golddiggers and ended at the Boozefighters MC Clubhouse for prize giveaways and food. We also have another fundraiser event planned at Valley Tavern & Grill in the near future to add to the monies raised.

  Surprisingly, this turned out to be one of our biggest rides to date! Also a little footnote: The Saints presented Prospect, "Knuckles" with his Top Rocker, a step closer to earning a FULL PATCH!!!

  The Saints MC of Cullman Co. worked their tails off this year and I'm so proud of them and proud to get to be a part of all of this"
