The date: June 4 , 2017. The place: Brooklyn NY The Event: Aidan’s Ride NYC. Despite lousy weather in the NYC area, and a lousy forecast the show must go on! A few of us from Dirty Jersey got up early to blue skies! We saddled up and boogie over to Brooklyn to take part in Aidan’s Ride! Aidan’s Ride is put on by the Aidan Jack Seeger Foundation to raise awareness and help pass laws to save children from a terrible disease ALD. The run is in memory of Aidan Jack Seeger, who lost his life to this shitty disease.
We arrived in Brooklyn at the Indian Larry Shop about 10am. The place was PACKED and vendors were setting up! People came in from all over NJ, NY, CT, DETRIOT, VIRGINIA….hell we met someone there from CALIFORNIA!! The ride kicked off with a police escort through the boroughs…the escort means NO TRAFFIC! We blasted through NYC and made a stop in Harlem. The police blocked the avenue so we parked where ever we wanted. When I asked Bobby Seeger why were stopping he said “When a place has the best rugalach in the city, ya gotta stop!” Can’t argue with that!! Trays of rugalach flooded the streets by Lee Lee’s Bakery….WORTH THE STOP!! We saddled back up and headed back to the shop.
We got a little sprinkle on us as we rolled in but no one cared!! The best taco’s around, Vax Taco was set up slinging INSANE tacos! Hard Rider NYC was selling gear and there was plenty of beer and food to go around. The DJ was blasting some awesome tunes and the shop was open for folks to stroll around. The shenanigans continued till about 6pm!
The day was awesome and a bunch of cash was raised for the foundation! Aidan’s Rides are popping up all over the country….get involved and get to NYC next June!!!!!
