5/26/17 – The Nation of Patriots tour will launch tomorrow. The motorcycle ride was started six years ago by a Waukesha-native with the goal of providing financial support to the families of wounded servicemen and women. As part of the ride, one flag is taken to each state in the lower 48. There are 100 ceremonial flag handoffs throughout the country, and each leg has a flag-bearer who fly’s the flag on the back of their bike. Each stop in the continental US is an opportunity to fundraise. A large group of Dodge County riders will join the Madison motorcyclists for the first leg of the journey. The event will take place at Hogz N Honeez Bar & Grill in Beaver Dam starting at 8:30am.
