Combat veterans ride to raise money, awareness for their peers

July 27, 2014

WOONSOCKET – With a good turnout of about 80 motorcyclists helping out, all Cercle Laurier President Roland Cagnon needed make Sunday’s Wounded Warrior benefit bike run perfect was a bit of cooperation from the weather.

And the riders were able to get ready for the run with the roads still dry and the bad weather holding off right up until they rolled out onto East School Street at 11 a.m.

But rain it did, and quite a bit before the motorcyclists made a turnaround in Burrillville and returned to Cercle Laurier for a cookout and performance of Ruckus the Band under the shelter of the club’s outdoor pavilion.

“Safety is always first and I wasn’t letting anybody get hurt,” Cagnon said of the forced trimming of a planned route of 68 miles out to Glocester and the Connecticut line and back to Woonsocket.
