Attention all Motorcycle Enthusiasts!

Lions Foundation of Canada's Ride for Dog Guides is a fundraising event specially catered to motorcyclists. Ride for Dog Guides was first started in 2009 by the Saltwater Retreads and the Enfield/Elmsdale Lions Club in Nova Scotia. The event has since grown with new locations. All proceeds support the seven Dog Guide programs at Lions Foundation of Canada.

Though each Ride for Dog Guides varies in activities, most follow a scenic pre-arranged route and offer refreshments, incentives, prizes and a poker run component.

You can help by donating to the Ride for Dog Guides campaign.
