'Rally for the Rugrats' Aims for World Record


An Orlando-based HOG group is working on breaking the world record for the most Harleys in a single ride while raising money for Toys for Tots.

Rally for the Rugrats collects money for the Marine Toys for Tots Foundation and for the Freedom Alliance Scholarship Fund, and has plans to gather riders at several rallies this year.

One ride will take place during the May Harley-Davidson rally, but will skirt Myrtle Beach. The exact route is to be announced.

The donation to ride is $40 for the driver and a $15 extra-rider fee.

Other record-breaking attempts will be at Laconia, N.H.; Sturgis, N.D.; and Daytona Beach. The group says all riders are welcome, but only Harleys will be counted for the record. The current record was set in 2002, when 2,118 Harleys participated in a Denver ride.
