Chicago Charity Motorcycle Rides
5/8/2013 1:43:00 PM
It’s my favorite time of year in Chicagoland. The leaves are appearing back on trees, the damn river is slowly receding back into its banks, and plenty of Chicago area charity motorcycle rides are starting to take place. I try and attend and help promote as many of these events as I can, and your welcome to join us.
Working at a kick ass rock radio station is pretty amazing; working at one that has the heritage and listener base such as The Loop, well.. That’s just incredible. Loyal Loopers, as they are often referred to, are really the heart and sole of the radio station. Truly and honestly we have the coolest group of listeners/friends out of every other radio station in town. Of course, being a Loyal Looper even before I was a DJ here has me a bit biased.
Did you know that 50% of everybody who rides a motorcycle in Chicagoland listens to the LOOP? Crazy Huh?
I am a big believer in using the tremendous power of media and my position here at the station to help support these great charity motorcycle rides to the fullest of my ability. This is the very reason I created the Rock Mafia, and informal name given to the guys and gals who ride with me. It’s simple; the idea is to use on-air mentions, social media, and live attendance to help support Chicagoland area charity motorcycle rides.
Sound like fun? You bet it is, and you’re more than welcome to ride with us. I’ll be posting upcoming rides on my blog here at WLUP.com, as well as on the “Events and Rides” page on my website: http://patcapone.com/rock-mafia-mc-events-and-rides
Our first official ride of the year is going to be The Little Angels Pledge Run on Sunday May 19th. Admission to the ride is about $25 and benefits one of the most amazing organizations you will ever find. Government funding to The Little Angels has been drastically cut and they absolutely rely on the support of people like us to keep their much needed services operational.

If you have an upcoming ride and would like some help promoting your event, you are more than welcome to contact me here at the radio station or via my website. As always, I will do whatever I can to help make your charity ride even more of a success.
I hope to see you out on the road this season. Ride Safe! Ride Often!
