Planning for the 2021 VIPER RIDE PLUS+™ is currently taking place. We are looking for dedicated individuals to help us throughout the year as we count down towards our fifth annual ride; THE VIPER RIDE PLUS+™ 2021. THE VIPER RIDE Leadership Team has many specific needs and we are looking for talented and dedicated volunteers to help us grow, improve, and maintain our high standards for this event. If you think you have what it takes and are so inclined to join us as a planner and a leader, please contact us at:

ASM Mamangement Group March 2020


Thanks to all who participated in the ASM BASIC + ADVANCED training on the weekend of 7-8 March 2020, co-sponsored by THE VIPER RIDE. Your training makes you an extremely valuable safety asset to THE VIPER RIDE and to the motorcycle community as a whole. Additionally, your enrollment under the VIPER sponsorship resulted in a much appreciated donation to the VIPER organization. Thank you, Thank you, Thank you!!

GROUNDCREW Age Restriction

Category : Information

Please be aware that due to the nature of THE VIPER RIDE event we do have a minimum age restriction for volunteers. For the safety of all participants and the event as a whole, no one under the age of seventeen (17) will be considered or allowed to participate as a VIPER GROUNDCREW VOLUNTEER. This age restriction does not apply to members of youth organizations such as the Boy Scouts or Girl Scouts, who are volunteering and participating as an organization under direct adult supervision (i.e. Scoutmasters, etc.)  

Thank you for your understanding!

Blind Disabled Veteran


There are 132,000 blind veterans nationwide.

Blindness leads to isolation, isolation leads to depression, and depression leads to bad things…

22 veterans commit suicide every day.

We can make a difference because we as motorcycle riders know being on, or even around, a motorcycle makes us feel more alive. We believe we can bring excitement, joy, and liveliness to veterans who may quietly and secretly need something extra in their lives. It is entirely possible that this event could literally save a Veteran’s life.

Please join us in making a difference in the life of a blind or visually impaired Vet!




THE VIPER RIDE PLUS The VIPER RIDE PLUS+™ 2021 is Sunday, August 22nd. Applications can be found at the links below:
