Mackie Harley-Davidson in Oshawa (880 Champlain Ave.) is a registration point for riders (August 29, 9 to 10:30 am). Supporters are encouraged to show their support by filling the overpasses to wave Canadian flags. At Canadian Forces Base Trenton, there will be numerous VIPs and presentations, music performance by 8 Wing Pipes and Drums, BBQ fundraiser, raffles, silent auctions and displays.

Numerous corporate sponsors have come on board to assist the ride;
