STURGIS, S.D. — The Rally is known for it’s good times and loud parties.
The group is a sobriety organization and they help other bikers stay sober. One ride at a time.
The club originally started in Massachusetts five years ago, but now there are chapters up and down the east coast, even reaching to the mid-west.
Some might have been to the Rally in previous years but not as club members. And others are experiencing it for the first time.
“A lot of us travel through the rooms of Alcoholics Anonymous, which is a great program. It gives all kings of support, it allows people from all over the country to get central services. You can find a meeting anywhere in the country through either their app or they have books,” Nee said. “We just want to extend that and there’s a lot of bikers in the world that may not necessarily feel like an Alcoholics Anonymous room is their kind of thing.”
Nee says he wants people to know that how they help themselves is there choice and he just wants people to know that they’re out there.
“We have people that, you know, we don’t necessarily consider them alcoholics or recovering drug addicts, but they chose to have a clean and sober lifestyle. And we have members from all walks of the disease of alcohol,” Nee said.
