Motorcycle enthusiasts from all walks of life throughout Southern California will get their motors running and head out on the highway in support of Guide Dogs of America (GDA) on Sunday, May 20, as the organization kicks off its 14th Annual Ride for Guides.

The dogs can often be seen going through training on the City of San Fernando’s streets.

The ride, which begins and ends on GDA’s Sylmar campus, is a poker run covering a scenic, 90-mile round-trip route along Angeles Crest Highway. Adorable GDA puppies-in-training greet riders at stops along the way, with lunch, a raffle, and assorted festivities at GDA following the ride.

 “Ride for Guides is one of our most popular events,” said GDA President Russ Gittlen. “It’s a wonderful way for people to show their support of GDA and the work we do to help change lives. We enjoy a great day with great weather, great dogs, and great people supporting a great cause.”

Day-of registration is available from 9-10 a.m. The $40 per person fee includes lunch, a GDA pin and a commemorative event bandana.

GDA is located at 13445 Glenoaks Blvd., in Sylmar. Ride for Guides takes place rain or shine.  Personal pets are not allowed on GDA grounds for the health and safety of program dogs.
