Fundraising efforts for this event included free will donation, sponsorships, sales from event T-shirts and a special event SWAG BAG! Because of the generosity of our members we were able to raise $5,000 in donation to the Minnesota Veterans Home. This money is used to get veterans out and enjoy the outdoors! Its used to help take veteran residents fishing, hiking, sight seeing, and yes even ATV riding!!!
June 26th 2021 in the small town of Silver Bay Minnesota, Minnesota ATV Riders hosted the 4th Annual Ride The Shore event. This event has become a staple in the Minnesota ATV riding community with over 500 machines in attendance in 2021! The city of Silver Bay is a amazing host city and does a amazing job opening their home to ATV riders from all over the United States. Ride The Shore is a fundraising event the Minnesota ATV Riders host to raise money for local and state wide charities. 2021 we were able to raise $5,000 for the Silver Bay Veterans Home! The local fire department SBFD hosted not one, not two, but THREE meals for our riders. Saturday morning was an awesome Pancake breakfast followed up by burgers and brats on the grill Saturday evening! But if you left hungry Sunday it was your own fault, because they once again hosted a breakfast feed Sunday morning at the fire hall!
Throughout the trail system we have placed our "SELFIE STATIONS" to make sure that our members and friends get to see a few of the great spots the local trail system has to offer.
All riders are provided with our selfie station maps for the ride, these maps help our riders do a "Selfie Station Tour" at their own pace. On the maps are also some points of interest as well as some of the local restaurants.
Our "Selfie Station Tour" signs are placed throughout the trail system to make sure riders can see all the highlighted spots.
From spots like "The Little Grand Canyon" and "Lake Superior Overlook" or places like "Al Capone's Gangster Hideout" and the "Baptism River Bridge" the Selfie Stations show off just a fraction of the beauty and mystery that the North Shore has to offer! Oh and not to mention "Black Beach"
