Nelsons Ride - 10th Annual (# 12351)
The Tenth Annual Nelson's Ride will be held at Gloucester's Stage Fort Park (rain date: Sunday, August 30). Nelson's Ride is annual slow ride in memory of Nelson Selig, Sr., who was killed in a motorcycle accident on May 2, 2000, leaving behind a wife, two children, family and many good friends. The annual fundraiser which began in August 2000, is intended to make one of Nelson Sr.'s dreams come true: to send his children to college. That dream was accomplished and in 2003, Nelson's widow requested that our Team begin helping other Essex County families of riders killed in accidents with the funds raised from Nelson's Ride. Additionally, Nelly's Bill became law in Massachusetts in 2004 as a result of the hard work of motorcyclists' lobbying efforts. It mandates that motorcycle awareness programs be included in drivers' education courses. The bill was named in honor of Nelson Selig, Sr. Read more about Nelly's Bill, its history, and how you can contribute to the Massachusetts Motorcyclists' Survivors Fund: "Riders helping Riders."
