Bikers for Barkers slated for June 3

Event benefits animals at humane society

The 18th annual Bikers for Barkers charity motorcycle run, presented by Roundhouse Harley Davidson, will take place June 3, rain or shine.

This annual event kicks off at 9 a.m. with on-site registration at the parking lot of Roundhouse Harley Davidson, 495 Municipal Drive, Duncansville, with kickstands up at 11 a.m.

The run ends at Legion Park in Hollidaysburg, following a scenic 100-mile ride through the mountains of central Pennsylvania.

This popular annual charity ride will wrap up “Paws in the Park,” a weekend-long event taking place at Legion Park for the benefit of the Central PA Humane Society. Post-ride entertainment by the band Shallow Nine and a chicken barbecue, as well as basket raffles and 50-50 tickets, will bring the weekend to a conclusion.

“This is an important fundraising event for CPHS because we receive no funding from state or federal agencies,” said Tamsen Nuss, CPHS board member and event chairwoman.

“Caring for the animals housed at our shelter costs approximately $20 per day per animal so community support is vitally important to our mission. Bikers for Barkers combines an enjoyable day on the back roads of central PA with the opportunity to continue to support and care for homeless animals in our area.”

Preregistration for this year’s Bikers for Barkers ride is $20 per person (includes ride, dinner entertainment and event T-shirt) until May 27; after May 27, registration will increase to $25 per person.

Registration forms may be obtained at the CPHS, 1837 Pleasant Valley Blvd., Altoona, PA 16602; forms may also be downloaded from the Bikers for Barkers Facebook page:


Riders may also register at Roundhouse Harley Davidson on the day of the event.
