Memorial Ride Aug 7th: Chris Walker, Kristen Bell, and countless others RIP. - July 6, 2011, 04:11 PM

As many of you know a good friend Chris Walker passed away suddenly on June 8th in a motorcycle accident on 495. Chris had a passion for life, passion for living it to the fullest and a love of bikes. Sadly he wasn't the only life lost on that day and Kristen Bell also left us and her young son behind.

To honor them both while celebrating the memories we are hosting a memorial/charity ride starting at Loudon Motorsports in Leesburg, VA on August 7th. We will be riding down route 7 and taking Georgetown Pike to 495 passing the accident site. The ride will come to an end at our old hang out spot in the Starbucks parking lot at Montrose Crossing. Some of us will then head over to Hooters just a few blocks down Rockville Pike. All are welcome to participate in the ride, cars and bikes alike.

Each participant is asked to donate a minimum of $10 which will be split among St.Judes and a fund set up for Kristen's son. We are working on getting tshirts made as well that will be on sale the day of the ride.
We are hoping this will be a huge event and that we are remembering not only Chris and Kristen but also all of those who lost their lives doing what they loved to do, ride.

Please direct any questions to my personal e-mail, newarburton@gmail.com I look forward to seeing everyone there.

Thank you all for the love and support for his family and friends over the past month. Chris touched so many lives and seeing everyone come together because of him... It just goes to show what a truly amazing man Chris was.

We love you CKW ♥
