With bright sun and warm coffee waiting to welcome them, around 50 members and friends of the new OFATV Coe Hill Riders ATV Club (CHATV) gathered at the Hideaway Restaurant on Saturday morning to kick off their “Feed the Community Ride.”
CHATV focuses on safe, fun use of trails and developing new ways to build community support for ATVing and the new club already has developed a local reputation for supporting local organizations with their trail events.
Riders showed-up to the registration with non-perishable food and cash for the Tri-Township Food Basket Food Bank and by the time the ATVs took off for their day of riding, they had raised $165 and filled the back of a jeep with food that will support local families who are facing food insecurity.
“The Coe Hill Riders ATV club is pleased to call Wollaston Township home,” says Club President, Darren Stevens. “We are committed to supporting our local businesses and other community services, such as the food bank.”
The new club has been attracting members from across the region and they have a newly inked partnership agreement with Wollaston Township. From new to experienced riders, the group of ATVs and UTVs enjoyed hours of riding, a picnic lunch and the Hideaway sponsored coffee break.
“It was a great day and a great turnout.” Stevens said after the ride.
For more details about the Coe Hill Riders ATV Club, Stevens asks people to visit their website at https://chatvc.ca/ or follow them on Facebook. The next ride is in August and all trails enthusiasts are welcome.
