Hey Riders,

Schedule yourself to donate blood on June 6 and make sure you get in at the time you want. Walk-ins are always welcome, but scheduled donors will get in at the time they’ve requested. Schedule online now, get the best times and avoid waiting! It’s easy and it’s the right thing to do! So do it now and avoid the rush.

Here’s how:

1) Go to
2) Click the red box at the top “Donating Blood”
3) Click the green button marked “Start Here” after it says schedule a blood
donation today
4) In the box marked zip or sponsor code enter “streetcycle” and click
the red button or “find a drive”
5) Click on where Street Cycles is in blue and schedule your time!

Bring it on folks, lets make this our best community service event of the year!

We hope to have a great turnout, so we’re asking our members to schedule your times and invite friends, family, and fellow riders!

Ride Safe! and enjoy this beautiful weather on two wheels!
