Riding into Coeur d’ Alene

COEUR d'ALENE - During a weeklong event starting April 27 in Coeur d'Alene, former NASCAR driver and racing analyst Kyle Petty leads more than 175 motorcyclists on a charity ride through the western U.S.

“Everybody wanted to go back to Coeur d'Alene,” Petty told The Press on Monday. “It's so pretty to ride out from there. We always try and start at a really nice place.”

Petty will be joined by former NFL great and 1982 Heisman Trophy winner Herschel Walker.

“Herschel has been doing it for years,” Petty said. “He's got more motorcycles than anybody I know.”

In a press release, Walker said, “It's truly a blessing to be a part of this experience.”

Pretty cool that Cda gets the nod for the start of the ride. Do you ride a motorcycle?
