United Riders Motorcycle Association Presents
Second Annual Bikes On Ice
Bikes On Ice is a fundraiser Motorcycle Show held at the Hyannis Youth and Community Center (indoors on the dry floor of the Butler Rink) on Father’s Day, Sunday, June 16, 2013 from 10 am to 4 pm.
Bikes On Ice is held in conjunction with the 19th Annual Father’s Day Car Show, Cape Cod and Hyannis’ highlight event of the year. In addition to Bikes On Ice and the car show, there is also a Craft Fair held on the Hyannis Village Green.
In years past, this event has been a huge draw and this year Barnstable Police estimate that crowds could reach 60,000-70,000. Such attendance would make this year’s show one of New England’s best-attended family events. The show is free to spectators and a great family day of fun.
All are welcome!
Bikes On Ice will feature stock, custom, and antique motorcycles, as well as vendors of all kinds. Motorcycle art designed by local artists will be raffled off along with donations by local businesses.
Proceeds will be donated to Cape Cod Child Development’s School-Age program and Tribute Flight.
Cape Cod Child Development is the largest provider of quality childcare, early education, developmental intervention and family support services on Cape Cod, the Islands and Wareham. As a nonprofit community resource, we are a leader in areas including Early Intervention for young children with disabilities and delays, Preschool/Head Start and School-Age programs.
Our comprehensive services set us apart from the rest. Programs promote activities that nurture every aspect of your child’s development—academic skills, social-emotional health, and physical wellness. We work in close partnership with each family to understand your needs and guide you with your children toward success.
Best of all, our high quality programs are affordable. Your family may qualify for state-subsidized, sliding-scale fees to access programs, or apply for our agency's scholarship funds. We also accept vouchers.
The Tribute Flight is a 77-day mission flown in a specially modified aircraft bearing the names of American and Coalition troops killed in Iraq and Afghanistan. The aircraft, a Bombardier Q400 modified and designated as the TFQ-400 Tribute Eagle, will not only honor fallen American and Coalition military personnel but will also serve as a venue to raise money for wounded American veterans by means of a pictorial book and DVD documenting the flight, as well through individual and corporate donations. The Tribute Eagle will fly to every U.S. state during the 77-day period, landing at the towns and cities where fallen troops come from, visiting between five and ten airports every day. On the 77th and final day of the mission, Tango Foxtrot Day, the TFQ-400 Tribute Eagle will land on the three-mile runway at the Shuttle Landing Facility (TTS) in Merritt Island, Florida, where the families of the lost will gather to remember their fallen loved ones. Accompanying the Tribute Eagle on the tarmac at the mission’s conclusion will be the Tribute Flight Supra, the official ground vehicle of the Tribute Flight. Other final day arrangements will include individual custom-made banners on display to honor each casualty, a concert featuring mainstream performers, and an outdoor banquet prepared by America's premier chefs. The Tribute Flight is not simply a series of flights with sporadic displays of homage and nationalism, but instead one of the greatest aviation and humanitarian endeavors of the new century. By the conclusion of this mission, millions of dollars will have been raised for wounded veterans and the TFQ-400 Tribute Eagle will have become the new and enduring symbol of American patriotism.
NOTE: The Tribute Flight is a non-partisan mission with no political affiliations or agendas. The only fidelities of the mission are to honoring fallen American and Coalition service personnel, providing aid to wounded American soldiers, and helping the families of the fallen and wounded.
