A charity ride to raise funds for the Nicky Hayden Memorial Foundation will be held June 9. The ride will hit spots such as Hayden’s memorial statue as well as his final resting place. It will end at Lure Seafood and Grille, where more than 200 special edition bottles of Four Roses bourbon bearing Hayden’s image will be sold.
Darin Tapp, a longtime friend of the Hayden family, said the first charity ride in honor of Hayden was held in 2018, bringing out roughly 800 participants. Tapp said the charity ride is being held this year on Nicky Hayden Day to honor Hayden’s philanthropic legacy.
