LYNDORA — The parking lot of American Legion Post 778 was filled with motorcycles Saturday morning, and the air was filled with classic rock. Leather vests and bandannas were the dress code as motorcyclists registered, bought raffle tickets and sipped coffee and ate doughnuts and breakfast sandwiches.

American Legion Riders Lyndora Post 778 was preparing for its first Vets Ride, with 74 riders and 18 passengers heading out at 11:30 a.m. for a 110-mile run that would see the motorcyclists travel to the Grove City and Brady’s Bend American Legion posts before returning to the Lyndora post in the afternoon for a dinner.

The money raised by riders’ and passengers’ fees and raffles would go to support veterans in the community, said Riders President Jim Miller of Chicora.
