We kicked off 2019 with the grand opening of Vine Maple Places Family Hope Center, a project we helped fund with multiple events over the last two years! Congratulations to the CRU community, you have to love seeing change you can ride by and see every day! Another significant off season contribution went to the Maple Valley Veterans Memorial Fund, celebrating those that have sacrificed to keep the United States and others safe & free. 


This year the CRU Community will be leading the Eastisde route to Seattle of the Distinguished Gentleman’s Ride, save the date for the September 29th, 2019. In 2018 115,000 riders world wide rode and raised $6.3 million dollars in support of men’s mental health and to fight cancer, lets bump it to $6.5M. 


While the schedule is on the "schedule page" know that the spring opener is the All Italian Show on April 14th at XXX Root Beer in Issaquah, lots of cool motorcycles, people's choice award, prize drawings and more! Enter your ride now to benefit the National Multiple Sclerosis Society! In May we have the big show at Backfire on the 15th (MS Fundraiser) and the fastest event, our race track fundraiser. Where people ride the track, receive classroom instruction and raise funds for Vine Maple Place! Don’t stop reading now, June gets better with a 2 day MS Tour for a Cure overnight ride to Winthrop! Along the way we have several events with our partner I-90 Motorsports in Issaquah, they also provide 10% off parts and accessories to CRU community members!

Charity of the Month ~ National Multiple Sclerosis Society

National Multiple Sclerosis Society - Multiple sclerosis (MS) involves an immune-mediated process in which an abnormal response of the body’s immune system is directed against the central nervous system (CNS).  The CNS is made up of the brain, spinal cord and optic nerves.

Within the CNS, the immune system causes inflammation that damages myelin — the fatty substance that surrounds and insulates the nerve fibers — as well as the nerve fibers themselves, and the specialized cells that make myelin. *More than 2.3 million people are affected by MS worldwide. Seattle area is one of the global hot spots for cases of MS.
