Motorcycles on the Mac – Cancelled
This event has been cancelled for 2017.
Motorcycles on the Mac –
formerly known as the Midnight Ride
Join us as the St. Ignace Events Committee hosts a new version of the “Midnight Ride”, to honor the memory of Ron Rowe. It was Ron who decided to make the Midnight Ride an annual event to raise money for the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation. This event has raised an estimated $400,000 to JDRF. The Events Committee will continue hosting a rally on this August weekend every year, and is dedicating the inaugural Motorcycles on the Mac event to the memory of Ron Rowe. Ron lost his battle with diabetes November 28, 2015.
