Motorcyclists: Meet Karl Urban at the Tulip Ride while raising money for Seattle Humane

Monday, April 4, 2016

Karl Urban, “Bones” from Star Trek, is joining the Tulip Ride this year. The Tulip Ride is a guided motorcycle ride that raises money for Seattle Humane. Last year, over 350 bikers and their passengers raised $50,000 for Seattle Humane.

Urban will be joined by actresses Tricia Helfer and Katee Sackhoff from Battlestar Galactica / The Acting Outlaws and Bender, host of Bender and Molly in the morning on 106.1 KISS FM. The celebrities will be available for photographs before and during the ride. Even if a fan doesn’t ride, they can still sign up to meet them during the kick-off event for a donation.

For those looking to adopt a cat, Seattle Humane's MaxMobile Mobile Adoption bus will be at the morning kick-off event along with Seattle Humane CEO David Loewe. Riders may place a hold on a pet and pick up their new companion after the ride at Seattle Humane in Bellevue.

Saturday, April 16, 2016 at 9:30am: Meet at Blazing Bagels in Redmond at 6975 176th Ave NE, Suite 365, and ride to the RoozenGaarde Tulip Farm located in Mt. Vernon at 15876 Beaver Marsh Rd. For specific route information, check out the Tulip Ride site’s route map.

The Tulip Ride began 15 years ago as a way for several Microsoft employees to blow off steam during the launch of the original Xbox. On a whim, about a dozen of them decided to ride up to the Skagit Valley Tulip festival. They extended the ride by heading to LaConner for lunch and then home by cruising down Highway 20 over Deception Pass. It was such a great day that it became an annual tradition that grew into the charity event it is today.
