Ride for a Reason

2018 Editors Notebook February

The Cody Waters Foundation, established by the parents of a nine-year old who died of brain cancer in 2009, will hold the annual Cody Waters Off-Road Ride to Survive fundraiser on March 10. The ride, which is open to motorcycles, quads, side by sides, buggies, trucks and any other type of off-road vehicle, begins in California City (near Mohave) and goes for 35 miles, mostly on fire lane roads. The registration fee is $60 for age 12 and older and $30 for those under 12. The ride is a “poker run,” which means that participants draw a playing card at five checkpoints along the way. Four riders with the best hands will be the winners – a male and female adult and a male and female youth (ages 8 to 15). There is also a 70-mile advanced ride for experienced off-roaders.
