ATV Ride For A Cure is This Sunday Morning The 2nd
Here is the sign.
It is becoming a tradition. It is year number 3 for Ride for a Cure in Hancock.
The Ride for a Cure Cancer Awareness ATV ride is on Sunday October2nd.
The event begins at the Acadia Area ATV’ers clubhouse at 3 Wyman Road in Hancock. Participants are encouraged to register in advance, here is the link.
Registration begins at 8 a.m. at the ATV’ers club, and the rain or shine ride departs at 9a.m. Rain means mud and ATV’ers love mud, right? However the forecast is for a nice and dry fall day.

Here is a fun aspect of the ride
All are encouraged to decorate their machines with pink and/or cancer awareness items as well as decorate bras which are voted on by peers to determine who has the best decorations.
