The Plainfield YMCA's 5th annual Send A Kid To Camp Ride will take place this Sunday, September 28.

All motorcycles are welcome, and bikers will assemble on East 6th Street, between Watchung and Cleveland Avenues. This is adjacent to the YMCA at 518 Watchung Avenue, directly across from Plainfield City Hall.

Registrations accepted morning of the ride, starting at 10:00 AM. Kickstands up at 11:30 AM. This is a rain-or-shine event.

The cost is $20 per biker, passengers free. Registration can be made using a credit card, either in advance by telephoning the YMCA at (908) 756-6060, or the morning of the ride.

The escorted ride will take bikers through scenic parts of New Jersey and end at the Kingsmen Motorcycle Clubhouse at Madison Avenue and West 3rd Street, where there will be food, vendors and a DJ from 1:00 - 3:00 PM. Prizes for contestant bikes will be given in the following categories: Custom, Cruiser, Sport and the best represented Club.

Proceeds of the ride help fund the YMCA's annual summer camp for kids
