The 18th Annual Ride for America – Thunder in the Country – takes place again on Memorial Day. For the sixth year in a row, it will be leaving from the American Legion Post 233 in Loganville and as many as 800 to 1,000 bikes are expected to head out on Highway 78.

KSU is scheduled for 9:30 a.m. The weather is supposed to be sunny and dry, getting up to the high 80s by the afternoon for the 18th Annual Ride for America – Thunder in the Country. However, there is a Code Orange Poor Air Quality Alert in place until 6:30 p.m. on Monday evening. 

The event cost is $10 per rider and $5 per passenger. The funds help support the Legacy Fund, a scholarship for children of the fallen. The ride is organized by the American Legion riders, headed up by Legion rider and co-founder of the event, Stan Mauldin. The public is reminded that a good way to thank the Veterans for their service is to get out and line the route to thank the riders as they pass.
