Tri-Cities Habitat for Humanity holds first-ever 'Ride for Habitat'

The roar of motorcycle engines filled the morning air in Spring Lake Township on Saturday for the first-ever Tri-Cities Habitat for Humanity's "Ride for Habitat' fundraiser. "Great events start out small and we're hope this is an event we can grow year to year,' Tri-Cities Area Habitat for Humanity Executive Director Beth Hanis said. "It's something different than anyone else is doing - and, already with the sponsorship and support we've received from the community, it's a huge benefit to Habitat.'

More than 15 motorcyclists took part in the event, with proceeds going toward providing assistance to the Habitat for Humanity’s goal of raising money to build a third house this year for the Habitat project on Branmar Woods Court  in Spring Lake.

The event took people from Spring Lake Wesleyan Church on a ride that ended up in Muskegon at Hot Rod Harley-Davidson, where a lunch and raffle took place.

Event organizer Bob Jenson said the route included stretches of east M-104, north Maple Island Road, west Ryerson Road, and south on Scenic Drive toward Muskegon.

“It’s a nice ride out in the country and not a lot of traffic,” Jenson said. “It’s pretty scenic.”
