Sheriff’s Charity Ride kicks off Saturday in Franklin

The the 13th annual Johnson County Sheriff’s Charity Ride is Saturday. Sheriff Doug Cox says this police-escorted ride will leave the Franklin Walmart at 10:30 am. He adds that in years past, there have been upwards of 200 to 250 motorcycles involved. This may cause a brief inconvenience for other motorists. Stops include Skillman Ford in Martinsville, Fletcher Chrysler in Franklin, Mann’s Harley Davidson in Edinburgh and The Nest (formerly Johnathan Byrds) in Greenwood.

Registration is Saturday from 8 a.m. to 10 a.m. Cost is $40 for single rider or $60 for a rider and passenger.

Officials say the schedule is as follows:

– Leaving Franklin Walmart at 10:30 and going to Skillman Ford in Martinsville (23.2 miles)
– Leaving Skillman’s around 11:35 a.m. and going to Fletcher Chrysler in Franklin for lunch (31.8 miles)
– Leaving Fletcher’s at or around 1:30 p.m. and going to Mann’s Harley Davidson in Edinburgh/Taylorsville (21.5 miles)
– Leaving Mann’s around 2:35 p.m. and going to The Nest in Greenwood (30.9 miles)

Sheriff Cox says that riders will be having dinner at the Nest and this is where we will hand out door prizes and finish up the day.
