When the Motorcycle Ride for Charity holds its big day next week, they’ll be stopping in St. Catharines for lunch on the way to their final destination in Turkey Point in Norfolk County.

Running for the first time since 2019, sponsored by the Ontario Realtors Care Foundation, the charity ride on September 28 will begin in Milton at Mattamy Cycling Centre and then travel 127 kilometres to Turkey Point.

However, there are stops along the way. After leaving Milton at 9:30 am, they head down a couple of highways to Hamilton’s Dundurn Park for a break from 10:15 am to 11:30 am.

But from there, they head off to St. Catharines for lunch at Flagship Fries (1244 Welland Canals Parkway St) from 1:15 pm to 2:30 pm.

Flagship Fries is, of course, one of St. Catharines’ top-ranked food trucks, scoring an incredible 4.6 out of 5 on Google reviews. It regularly makes Top-Five lists of the Best Food Trucks in the Niagara Region.

Now in its 15th year, the annual Motorcycle Ride for Charity is an all-realtor group. “Those who ride motorcycles rev up their engines and make their way to different cities each year as a tribute, with stop celebrations, speeches and more, all in support of Ontario charities,” say organizers.

Over the years, the Ride has raised over $400,000 for local shelter-based charities in Ontario. This year’s goal is $40,000 and organizers say they are already halfway there.
