‘Roar to the Shore’ cited in state hearing on Pagans’ growth
The Roar to the Shore event, held every September in Wildwood, is now a “mandatory run” for Pagan’s Motorcycle Club members in New Jersey. This year, it was on law enforcement’s radar.
State investigators cited the event in a state hearing Wednesday — which included heightened security — on the growth of the club in the state, its spread to the north and its increased criminality and visibility throughout New Jersey.
In September, Mayor Ernie Troiano said the city would be weighing whether or not to continue holding the motorcycle enthusiast gathering, citing an “element” taking over the rally in recent years.
