The BI-STATE Motorcycle Awareness Council was founded in 1985. Though the primary purpose is promoting motorcycle awareness and safety, the Council has adopted the Quad Cities Children Therapy Center as the benefactor of donated funds which the ride raises. The Council is able to raise these funds to support the cause through the sale of event shirts, 50/50 drawings, and other solicited donations.
Starting in 2008 we changed to pay to ride format. This was due to an estimated $4000 to $5000 projected charge for Police work. A number of the cities that provided free services in the past are charging police assistance fees. Only Davenport remained at no-cost to us. That is why we are now having an event with a short self- directed ride to get back to free.
The Council is also seeking representatives from different motorcycle clubs and associations for the non-political Council. Because of the diversity of the membership, the Council does not endorse nor promote any special interest persons, groups, or issues. Bistatecouncil@yahoo.com or like us on Facebook.
Please come out and support Motorcycle Awareness and the Quad Cities Childrens Therapy Center!
