CPHS Bikers for Barkers set for July 14
The 13th Annual Bikers for Barkers motorcycle run and car show to benefit the Central Pennsylvania
Humane Society (CPHS) sponsored by the Central Pennsylvania Convention & Visitors Bureau will be
held Sunday July 14th, 2013. Registration will be 9:00am to 11:00am, with kickstands up and motors
running at 11:30 sharp.
The run starts at Splinters Championship Lanes as in the past. Jill Reigh, CPHS Director of Outreach and
Marketing announced today that the ride now ends at Brush Mountain Sportsmen’s Club (BMSC). She
commented, “After an incredible ride through Blair, Centre and surrounding counties, we will all gather at
the BMSC for a great dinner and live music. Brush Mountain Sportsmen’s Club has plenty of covered
space for eating and dancing to the music. Plus they offer a swimming pool, lots of green space for
walking and a beautiful pond. This will be the perfect place to stretch and enjoy after the run.”
The day will feature a spectacular 100 plus mile ride through Central Pennsylvania, passing through many
small towns including Port Matilda and Houtzdale. Show cars are welcome to register and ride with their
route reversed from the bikes, crisscrossing during the afternoon. Registration for motorcycles and cars is
$20 per person.
Registration forms are available online at www.centralpahumane.org. Registration is $20 per rider, and
includes a limited edition event T-Shirt, dinner (catered by Jack’s Grubb Shack) and entertainment with
all proceeds helping the homeless animals at CPHS. Pre-register by June 14th to guarantee t-shirt size and
express registration the day of the event. The CPHS Bikers for Barkers Motorcycle Run & Car Show is a
