Weather delays Polar Bikers Ride


The 22nd annual Polar Bikers Ride will have to wait a few days. Sponsors hope the weather will be friendlier on Saturday, Jan. 6.

All motorcycles are welcome to visit the Ehlerding Harley-Davidson and Honda Kawasaki Motorsports dealerships at 5525 State Road 930 East in New Haven. Registration is from 11 a.m.-noon, with riders leaving at 12:15 p.m. sharp.

After the ride, participants are invited to warm up with chili and hot beverages provided by Ehlerding’s and the Mad Anthony H.O.G.® Chapter. Sponsors will accept donations for Honor Flight of Northeast Indiana.

The ride had been scheduled for its traditional New Year’s Day time slot. But the forecast called for a high of 9 above zero and a low of 9 below. Sponsors postponed the ride “for the safety and well-being of all riders, due to road conditions and frigid temperatures.”
