Six Atlantic Canada Motor Maids rode the Cabot Trail in Cape Breton, NS, September 8, as part of Gord's Ride 4 the Cure. Over 800 bikers participated in the ride in support of Breast Cancer research. More than $80,000 was raised, bringing the total through the years to over $500,000.
On the trip to Cape Breton Friday, ACMM Jo picked up a nail in her back tire. Veteran participant in the ride, ACMM Ann, spoke to the organizer. Saturday morning, two RCMP motorcycles and one cruiser appeared in the parking lot in front of Jo's bike. One of the officers plugged the tire and it functioned perfectly for the remainder of the trip. Continuing luck followed Jo and she won a helmet and insurance certificate at the awards ceremony. Lady luck was not with ACMM Shan, as she lost a highway peg and pony tail on the ride :(
