If you missed the Automotive Aftermarket Riders Club (AARC) “Greatest of All-Time” (G.O.A.T.) ride last time, don’t worry. AARC will take the same legendary route this October when they embark on the annual ”Ride for the Future.”
AARC is seeking riders, sponsors and pledges for its ride from Las Vegas to Arizona and back prior to the start of Industry Week.
“Whether on a motorcycle, bike, car, slingshot, Can-am or trike, if it rolls, you can roll with us on our annual AARC ‘Ride for the Future,’” said Bill Maggs, MAAP, treasurer of the University of the Aftermarket Foundation and leader of the pack. “There were so many great stories from the 2016 ride, we figured we had to travel that same route again so those who missed it could enjoy the awesome scenery and camaraderie experienced two years ago. As always, all proceeds will be donated to the University of the Aftermarket Foundation, so if you can’t join us, please consider supporting a rider or making a donation to the foundation.”
The 2018 AARC “Ride for the Future” will start from the Las Vegas Harley-Davidson dealership on Thursday, Oct. 25 and will head to Prescott, Arizona, via Old Historic Route 66 and return north along the Colorado River the following day. On Oct. 27, riders will travel to the Grand Canyon to visit the infamous Skywalk, a cantilevered glass walkway extending 70 feet from the rim of the Grand Canyon and overlooking a 2,000-foot drop to its basin, before returning to Las Vegas.
Motorcycles can be rented from the Las Vegas Harley-Davidson dealership with an advance reservation.
