Construction in downtown Fenwick means a change in the route of Friday night’s Ride of The Flags, which could involve more than 200 bikes.
The Ride leaves Clare’s Cycle and Sports on Hwy 20 at 6 p.m. It will go east to Effingham Street, south to Canboro, then east to Haist St., south to Welland Road, then west on Foss to Church and Centennial Park.
Bikers have been warned about the traffic humps on Haist Street, which is usually lined by spectators.
At the park on Friday ,the Fenwick Lions will have a fish fry with entertainment by the Chris Anton Band. Vendors will be set up.
Over 11 years Biketoberfest raised more than $670,000. The money has gone to Fenwick Lions projects as well as the Lions Foundation of Canada and Canadian Diabetes Association research.
Highlight of the show is a draw for a 2014 Harley Davidson CVO Road King motorcycle about 5:30 p.m. Saturday.
During the day, which begins at 9 a.m., more than 40 vendors will sell motorcycle gear and other items. Entertainment will include music by the Travelling Beer Bellies. New motorcycles will be displayed and riders will enter bikes in a show and shine.
Harley Davidson will display new motorcycles including, for the first time in Canada, its electric bike.
For the third year, BikerTV will film the event.
