The eighth annual Ole’s Ride will be held Saturday, Aug. 26 starting with registration at 10 until 11:30 a.m. at Billy’s Corner Bar, Vergas. The kickstands go up at noon. The ride will make different stops along the way and end back at Billy’s for a concert by the Fat Cats at 9 p.m.
 
Friday evening, Aug. 25 there will be a bike show from 6:30-8:30 p.m. with pre-registration at Billy's.
 
The event is in memory of Ole Barten, who lost his battle to cancer in February 2011. Hospice of the Red River Valley cared for Ole during his last months, and the family wanted to use the event as a way to give back to an organization that cares for so many families in the area. Past rides have raised over $60,000 for Hospice. 
 
The cost is $25 per bike, $15 for additional rider, and includes a T-shirt, meal and chances at door prizes at each stop. A meal and live music by the Fat Cats follow the ride. Info: Ole’s Ride Facebook page, www.facebook.com/OLES-RIDE-114388001990156.
