Posted by: Cathy Eng in News, WGV Events

Mark your calendar to have a great time for an even greater cause! World Golf Village is preparing for the 18th Annual Riding into History event coming May 19 and 20 to the heart of WGV. Billed as a world class Vintage Motorcycle Concours d’Elegance, Riding into History showcases hundreds of antique and vintage motorcycles, as well as representation by exhibitors and motorcycle clubs.

Best of all, the volunteer-run Riding into History organization is a big contributor to K9s for Warriors. In fact, they donated $40,000 to K9s for Warriors after last year’s event!

Here is a synopsis of this year’s goings-on:

Friday, May 19
• Grand Marshals Historic Vintage Lunch Ride – Event entrants are invited to participate in this historic ride through Florida’s back roads, and of course, lunch along with the 2017 Grand Marshal! Space is limited and pre-registration is required.
