Patriots Pack Get Ready For A Different Ride

Under normal circtumstances, Patriots Pack riders would be hitting the road about now to begin the annual 3,000-mile charity run from Arizona to Atlanta and up to DC.

Along the way, the team stops at imaging dealers as they make their way towards their final goal – Rolling Thunder, the Memorial Day biker ride through the Capital to honor our troops, veterans, MIA and KIA.

The ride is always done for a charity; over the last several years the group has ridden for The Jillian Fund, the charity started by George Gorman, who many of you know. You can learn about the Jillian Fund from a recent interview.

While The Ride has been postponed, Mike “Paco” Stramaglio and JB “Papa” Brostrom will be saddling up to Ride for America!

There will be no corporate sponsors, no RV support vehicle, no rolling 10-12 deep at times with big groups behind police escorts. This time, masks will be worn, distance will be kept and hands and gloves will be sanitized regularly!

COVID-19 has forced us to alter our plans this year, but the spirit of the Patriots Pack will be seen in this much smaller form as the boys ride from Arizona. We’ll update you on their stops along the way!

Join us in sending Paco and Papa off on Sat. morning. Kickstands up at 12 PM EST.
