The past few months, and really since March 1st, 2023, when The Rolling Barrage commenced Registrations for this year’s ride, the organization has shown significant ridership growth. The number of riders who have committed themselves to conducting “The Full Pull” in this year’s ride is amazing.
With a sponsor like Big Freight Systems, we have been able to offset the costs for a good portion of riders in transportation of their motorcycles. Despite not everyone being able to have that opportunity, the Registrations for “The Full Pull” still has come in and every rider who has committed to that is sincerely appreciated. Our “Full Pull” ridership group is the largest it has ever been since The Rolling Barrage started in 2017.
The Rolling Barrage wants to continue growth for this year’s ride in 2023, especially in the 1–3-day range. Many of the provinces have between 1-3 stops apart from Ontario. But with Ontario, a rider could realistically join us in Kingston, Petawawa, Sault Ste Marie, Thunder Bay, or Dryden and ride a 1–3-day combination between any of those start and end points.
The chances of interacting with riders, colleagues, former colleagues and friends doing The Full Pull, by riding 1-3 days with us is quite great. Your 1–3-day ride could easily transition into meeting friends and colleagues you have not met in some time at a location 1 day, 2 days or even 3 days away from where you live. Chances are great you will end up with new friends as many on previous rides with The Rolling Barrage have experienced.
For riders in our policing, fire department and emergency medical services, the growth of riders in this area has increased significantly over the years. If you are retired or even on active duty currently but have some time off, consider riding with us. There is a lot more interaction with those in the First Responder community on The Rolling Barrage than maybe you realize.
We have retired members of the RCMP, for example, who not only help in our liaison efforts with police organizations across Canada, but also retired firefighters who help in liaison efforts. They too also ride. As you can see in our videos, the first responder community provided us with safety escort services right across the country. So, between riders on The Rolling Barrage who are active or retired, and meeting fellow First Responders who provide escort duty, there are lots of opportunities to mix and mingle with a community you are familiar with.
Really, no matter who you are, we’d love for you to join us. We have many supporters and riders who are not military or first responders. We have them within our Board of Directors and provincial planning groups.
