'Motorcycle Adventure' to be part of June 20 Touch-a-Truck event

Friday, June 12, 2015

The Greencastle American Legion Post 58 and Fraternal Order of Eagles 4388 are sponsoring the "ABATE of Indiana Children's Motorcycle Adventure" in conjunction with the third annual Touch-a-Truck event scheduled for Saturday, June 20 from 10 a.m.-2 p.m. in the Greencastle High School parking lot.

The Putnam County ABATE group will be there with small bikes for children to ride. They will be fitted with a helmet and the volunteers of Abate teach them in a couple laps how to steer and maneuver a motorcycle.

The children must weigh under 80 pounds. The effort is designed to introduce children to motorcycles in a safe and controlled environment.

Free hot dogs will be available for children.
