Memorial Ride & Service for Lloyd Munroe – August 15, @ 2 PM

The family of Lloyd Munroe would like to have a memorial ride for him this Wednesday August 15th, 2018 starting at 2 PM leaving from the Coast Guard Base next to BIO and out to the Buffalo Club in Eastern Passage where a memorial service will be held from 3 pm – 6:30 pm.

If you are able to attend and ride it would be greatly appreciated. Please share this message.

Lloyd “Gorilla” Munroe

Cara has requested that we line up at Baffin Boulevard close to the Coast Guard Base and BIO and ride his daily route straight down Windmill Road to Alderney and straight through to Pleasant Street out to Eastern Passage to the Buffalo Club where we will have his service.

Lloyd was very well known in the biker community and we expect that there will be a large turnout of bikes for his last ride.  Please be safe and ride aware as we have had way too many bike accidents this summer.

Donations may be made to Bikers Down Society in Memory of Lloyd as per his family’s wishes.  I’ve posted a link to his obituary as well for online condolences.

A Bikers Prayer & Condolences August 11, 2018

The Board Members of Bikers Down Society for all of Nova Scotia would like to take a moment to recognize the impact of the loss of another brother in our riding community.

On Saturday as we started to receive all our guests for Toadstock, a man who has supported Bikers Down for a very long time arrived from a beautiful ride up to East Wallace just so he could stop in, make a donation and have a chat with old friends.

We heard about the bike accident that afternoon as the biker games had gotten underway but no one is ever prepared for the shock of the loss of a friend, a brother, a biker, and an outstanding soul.

So many kind words were spoken today as the news was shared with us that indeed it was Lloyd who had just taken his last ride.

We offer our condolences to the family and friends of Lloyd and will share information as to his memorial / funeral as we become aware of it on our blog and facebook page.

We took a moment last night to remember our brothers and sisters who are no longer with us, but we’re certain they were there for the celebration of life we had this weekend.

For now, we can say Rest in Peace and repeat The Biker’s Prayer against the backdrop of a beautiful summer sunset at East Wallace Motorcycle Campground captured on August 11, 2018.

Bikers Down BBQ Aug 9 – Cancelled by Thundershowers Forecast

Hi guys,

 

Well, we don’t like cancelling a BBQ as they are our bread and butter fundraisers through the summer but we don’t want anyone out on their bikes in a downpour either.

We’ll hopefully see you at Toadstock this weekend in East Wallace.  We’re heading up tomorrow with a full trailer and crew of bikes.

Thanks for all your continued support.   Bikers helping Bikers

 

 

Support for Injured Biker

Last Friday, there was an accident on Highway 102 and the rider went down because of an unrepaired pothole.  He’s in bad shape but will survive his injuries.

We have been in touch with him and his wife and were approached by his daughter-in-law to share a Gofundme page she has opened to help out financially.

We support Larry and his spouse and will be looking at ways we can reach out to the Government of Nova Scotia and Department of Highways to get these damn holes repaired.  We’ve noticed on highway 103 the divided highways are caving in along the centre line as well.  This is not acceptable.  Spending millions twinning new sections of the highway and they cannot keep the existing highway fixed up.

You can find the Gofundme page here to help out directly if you can.
