It’s time to “Get your motor running…Head out on the Highway” for the 2019 Greatest Escape Motorcycle Ride!!

The ride, which raises funds for mesothelioma research conducted by the Pacific Mesothelioma Center in Los Angeles, is inspired by The Great Escape movie, starring Steve McQueen, who died of mesothelioma in 1980. Clare Cameron, Executive Director of PMC, says, "We are thrilled to again be hosting The Greatest Escape Motorcycle Ride, says PMC Executive Director Clare Cameron. “After holding the ride five years in a row and taking a break in 2018 to pursue other fundraising endeavors, we were inundated with requests to bring back the ride in 2019. So this year we’re back with a new route and the support of a new group of volunteers.”

Since its inception, the event has attracted hundreds of riders from all over Southern California for the opportunity to gather and reflect. Worthington & Caron has been a supporter since the beginning and is proud to be a presenting sponsor again this year.

The ride is Saturday, April 6. Riders will meet at Ventura Harley-Davidson located at 1326 Del Norte Road in Camarillo. Check-in and Day-of-Event Registration opens at 10:00 AM.
