We had an opportunity to once again, work with NuVision Federal Credit Union for a 4th of July Freedom Ride that kicked off at Huntington Beach with coffee and doughnuts and concluded for BBQ at Cook's Corner, a historic biker bar in Trabuco Canyon.
For those wondering, yes, NuVision is the same organization that gives free gasoline to Veterans and Active Duty members of the armed forces on Memorial Day and Veterans Day. "Honoring those who serve"
Bikers roll into NuVision's lot at 7am.
Welcoming the participants and giving a some safety reminders, and making sure everyone registered properly so that the toll road fees are properly covered.
From what I heard, there were over 200 participants to the Freedom Ride.
