What is the Torch Ride for Special Olympics?
The Torch Ride for Special Olympics is a celebration of the motorcycle industry, motorcycle enthusiasts and Law Enforcement Motorcycle Divisions and their support of Special Olympics Ontario. It is a one day event held in numerous communities across the Province in which Law Enforcement Officers make special dispensation and escorts a safe and controlled motorcycle ride or supports a “Poker Ride” through their respective communities.
