UPCOMING EVENTS
BE SURE TO CHECK US OUT ON FACEBOOK
ALR RIVERVIEW

Watch your e-mails for any last minute rides and changes. If you have a biking event you’d like to invite others to join in, please e-mail the details and we’ll be happy to send it to the group.


Official Rides: These are the official ALR148 rides scheduled for this month. Official rides are those rides sanctioned by our executive board. These rides count toward getting and maintaining membership as a Legion Rider. All riders are encouraged to participate if possible. These rides will be lead by the Road Captain or one of the Assistant Road Captains. Official rides support our veterans and strengthen our position in the community.

Fun Rides: These are the currently planned fun rides, though more may come up at any time. Fun rides are not sanctioned by the executives, and your participation is optional. These rides may be organized and lead by anyone. Schedules and routes are subject to change, depending on the weather, the leader, and the whim of the group that’s riding. These typically focus on scenic backroads and good watering holes. In the event of a conflict between a fun ride and an official ride, the official ride takes precedence.

Flag Placement On Motorcycles

(From http://americanlegionriders.net/Flags.shtml)

US Flag Only: If only the US Flag is on your bike, it should either be at the center, or to its "marching right" - on the right side of the motorcycle to the rider's perspective when facing forward.

US Flag And One Other Flag Of Any Type: If the US Flag is on your bike with another, it should be to its "marching right" - on the right side of the motorcycle to the rider's perspective. If the other flag is that of another nation, it should be the same size and at the same height of the US Flag - NO flag should ever be displayed higher than the US Flag.

US Flag And More Than One Other Non-National Flag: If the US Flag is on your bike with several other non-national flags (POW/MIA, ALR, Eagles, Service Banners, etc.) , it should be at center and higher than any of the other flags.

US Flag And More Than One Flag Including Those Of Other Nations: If the US Flag is displayed on your bike with those of any other nation, the flags should be same size and at the same height, with the US Flag to marching right (right side of the vehicle), and others arranged in alphabetical order to the left. Other flags should be arranged in order of decreasing importance - Nations first, states (in order of admittance) and territories second, military third (in order of establishment), and then any others. Again, no flag should fly higher than the US Flag, but the US Flag should be no higher than that of any other nation’s displayed.
