Bright and early last Sunday morning, (May 29), 17 motorcycle enthusiasts ventured out of Habitat for Humanity Greater Ottawa‘s east-end ReStore on Belfast Rd. and took part in the First Annual ReStore the Ride. The 200 plus km Poker Run Ride helped raise more than $1,300 for the ReStores.
The poker run included three stops – the Cardinal Truck Stop, Woody’s Place in North Augusta and Rob Roy’s Pub & Restaurant in Smiths Falls. The Habitat for Humanity GO volunteers were ready at every stop before riders arrived to make sure that everyone received their poker cards.
The Ride’s final stop was at the Lagois Design Build Renovate studio in North Gower, where riders, along with volunteers, gathered for a delicious feast of pulled pork sandwiches cooked to perfection by chef Jeff Pinck, tasty fries donated by Chip Chop, beverages, prizes, and more.
