The 28th edition of the next US Love Ride will happen October 23, 2011. But do you know that there is a similar big charity ride in Switzerland?
Last weekend, the Swiss Love Ride 19 was held in the beautiful Zurich countryside using the Swiss Air Force Museum as the event’s headquarter. Particularity is the fact that handicapped people who never got a chance or no more get the physically ability to ride a motorcycle get the opportunity to participate as passengers on bikes, sidecars and trikes. This year, 12,000 bikers and 282 handicapped participated on 8100 motorcycles and raised an outstanding half a million Swiss Francs in one day (US 570,000.) Photography copyright Horst Roesler
