IBA’s annual charity ride is Saturday


The Independent Bikers Association Motorcycle Club will hold its 32nd annual charity poker run on Saturday.

The 32nd annual Iron Butt Poker Run Thru the Hills is set for Saturday and everyone is welcome to join the ride that will benefit the Central Ohio Food Bank, according to organizers.

The Independent Bikers Association (IBA) Motorcycle Club is sponsoring the event. The fee to participate is $15 for a single rider and $25 for a couple.

Participants can sign up on June 27 from 10:30 a.m. to noon at the IBA clubhouse, located at 211 N. 11th St. in Greenfield.

There will be multiple starting points throughout central and southern Ohio, with riders merging during the run.

The ride will culminate at the IBA’s west central clubhouse located on 40 acres on Wisecup Hill Road in Ross County, member Nelson Hunter said.

Free camping, door prizes, and live music will be offered with food and drinks available for purchase.

Anyone that wants to join the IBA motorcycle clubs on the ride is welcome to do so, Hunter said. The annual event “is a lot of fun” with all proceeds each year going to a charitable organization voted on by the club.

Last year, more than 100 bikes participated in the run, the proceeds of which went to Big Brothers Big Sisters.

According to the club’s Facebook page, folks are also invited to join in on other events throughout the year.
