The Redrum Motorcycle Club held its second annual ride in honor of veterans Friday, with completion occurring at the The Monument’s parking lot in Rapid City.
International President of Redrum Cliff Matias said it is important for the group to support veterans, especially veterans experiencing homelessness. Dozens of motorcycles completed Friday’s ride in The Monument parking lot near the Memorial Park band shell where members of the homeless community and all veterans and riders were invited for a free lunch.
“We call it the veterans warrior ride,” Matias said. “And it’s in honor of veterans, Native American veterans and also all veterans who served this country and also a very important part of that is the homeless veterans. We understand there’s a really large homeless veteran population here in Rapid City and those that come to the feeds in this park.”
