ATV enthusiasts will flock to the Sandilands tomorrow for the third annual Ride for Mom.

Founded by Deborah Nicol, the Ride for Mom is an ATV trail ride in support of CancerCare Manitoba.

Nicol won’t participate this year for health reasons, said David Lee, Eastman ATV Association president.

"We’re carrying on this ride in her spirit."

The ride is a "celebration of survival and persistence," said Lee. He hopes by rallying together participants can encourage those battling cancer.

This year’s event debuts a new section of trail, for a total of around 90 kilometers of riding. Halfway, riders will be treated to a hot lunch, displays by local motorsport dealers, and a safety presentation by the ATV Association of Manitoba.

In the morning a food truck will be on hand for riders to purchase breakfast.

Lee said last year they had 534 machines show up to ride, some carrying passengers. So far, they’ve had 300 drivers register in advance. Anyone who wants to ride can also show up and register on Saturday.
