Camp Rainbow Gold campers will get a surprise Sunday when the 16th annual Motorcycle Escort delivers them to their camp north of Ketchum.
The Boise Valley Riders Motorcycle Club will present the young’uns with custom hoodies with their biker names on the back.
The club has made the campers honorary members. That means: When the campers ride, the club will ride, as well. And that means the club will escort the campers back from Cathedral Pines to Boise when camp week is over.
The motorcycle escort will escort the youth, ages 6 through 12, from Happy Family, 3880 W. Americana Terrace in Boise at 11 a.m.
Their initial destination: Bellevue Memorial Park where Mahoney’s Bar & Grill will be serving a barbecue lunch.
The motorcycle club and busload of youngsters hope to arrive at Bellevue Memorial Park at about 1:30 p.m. where they will join up with hundreds more motorcyclists. Following lunch motorcyclists will escort the campers to camp at Cathedral Pines, 14 miles north of Ketchum.
