15th Annual Chrome City Ride
From custom and classic to a few concept luxury vehicles, the 15th Annual Chrome City Ride is set to take place on Sunday, July 31st 2016 from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the Benedictine School in Ridgely. All motorcycles, street rods and custom cars are invited to participate.
Each year the event draws hundreds of motorcycles, street rods and custom cars from around the region to raise money for Benedictine’s annual fund needs that includes tuition assistance, technology tools and renovation projects on campus.
Riders gathering at designated registration locations in Laurel, Annapolis, Salisbury and Easton will cruise in police escort convoys to the Benedictine School campus. Spectators will get the chance to hear the roar of vehicles as riders come down the mile drive onto campus.
On display at this year’s event will be a 1941 Willys Pro-Street Coupe, a unique donation from a New Jersey car collector with an appraised value of $72,000. The hot rod will go to the highest bidder through an online auction on Ebay Motors.
Scheduled activities include raffles prizes which include a weekend stay in an Affinia Hotel in New York City and the Tidewater Inn in Easton, Md., along with door prizes, car contests and foo. According to event chairman Spud Blake, the event is organized and produced by volunteers, primarily from state and local law enforcement.
“We are so appreciative of the committee members who help put on this event each year,” said Blake. “The excitement these folks have brought to the campus at Benedictine over the last fourteen years is impressive.”
The event’s $25-per-rider registration fee provides each rider with an official Ride T-shirt, catered lunch, and entertainment and a day of fun showing off their chrome to an appreciative crowd.
