Comforcare motorcycle ride set for Saturday

By Tim Ruzek

Motorcyclists plan to gather Saturday for the second annual Building for the Future Ride for Seniors, which will travel from Austin to Waukon, Iowa.

Comforcare Good Samaritan Society is organizing the ride, which is set to begin with registration from 10 a.m. to 11 a.m. Saturday at Watt’s Cookin’ and Auto Truck Plaza, 1509 10th Place N.E., in Austin.

Cost is $20 minimum per bike, but there’s no charge if a rider’s pledges total more than $20.


The ride will include a midway break in Cresco, Iowa, with a final destination at a Harley-Davidson shop in Waukon. Prizes will be awarded there, along with free bratwursts and pop.

Comforcare, a nonprofit nursing facility for seniors at 205 14th St. N.W., is building facilities on open land in northeast Austin, north of Interstate 90 near the KAAL-TV station. Fliers and pledge envelopes are available at Comforcare and at Trimble’s Cycle Center, Wagner Hardware and Persinger’s Equipment in Austin. In Brownsdale, they’re available at the Keg and Greenway Co-op.
