The Tulip Ride is a guided motorcycle ride that raises money for Seattle Humane. Last year, hundreds of bikers and their passengers raised $100,000 for Seattle Humane!

The riders will be joined by actresses Tricia Helfer (Lucifer / Battlestar Galactica) and Katee Sackhoff (Longmire / Battlestar Galactica), actors Karl Urban (Star Trek / Lord of the Rings),  Kurt Yaeger abd Chris Reed (Sons of Anarchy) and Bender and Bailey from 106.1 KISS FM’s “The Bender and Molly Show”. The celebrities will be available for photographs before and during the ride.

The Tulip Ride began 17 years ago as a way for several Microsoft employees to blow off steam during the launch of the original Xbox. On a whim, a group rode 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.
