FROM STAFF REPORTS

MONTEVALLO–The first annual SEA Sammy Ride/Motorcycle Ride will have registration at 8 a.m. and kickstands up at 9 a.m. from the University of Montevallo’s Alabama Traffic Safety Center on Saturday, Aug. 20, with the proceeds benefiting Shelby Emergency Assistance.

Registration includes a T-shirt and lunch for a donation of only $30 for one rider or $40 for two on the same motorcycle with all the proceeds going to SEA. The registration form can be obtained by going to the Shelby Emergency Assistance Facebook page or the SEA office at 3822 Alabama 25 in Montevallo.

The scenic Motorcycle Ride will be approximately 100 miles through Shelby and Chilton counties with the halfway point being Wilsonville.

SEA executive director, Karen Pendleton, said for convenience, riders can register the day of the event at the University of Montevallo’s Alabama Traffic Safety Center start location. Pendleton encourages all motorcycle enthusiasts to come out for a day of fun for all ending with lunch and door prizes.

Pendleton said that Shelby Emergency Assistance provides basic needs assistance to Shelby County residents experiencing a crisis.

Last year, SEA assisted 2,223 individuals in Shelby County in meeting their basic needs of food, housing, clothing and medical needs.

SEA plans to make the SEA Sammy Ride/Motorcycle Ride an annual fundraiser with additional features next year to make the event even bigger.

The SEA Sammy Ride/Motorcycle Ride would not be possible without the generosity of University of Montevallo, city of Montevallo, Lucky’s Foodland, Piggly Wiggly, Riteway Promotions, Montevallo Chamber of Commerce, Shelby County Reporter, Alabaster Newsletter and many more.
