BikerMonkey’s Wag The Dragon Challenge – 2,000 -N- 48
Benefits Mansfield Masonic Lodge
The BikerMonkey’s Wag The Dragon Challenge is a SaddleSore 2,000 qualifying ride to raise funds for various programs and needs in the Mansfield, Texas community through the Mansfield Masonic Lodge. You might be asking why in the world Mansfield, Texas and Masonic Lodge? Well….. Troy Martin, a die hard BikerMonkey rider and a Masonic member, was telling us about the awesome fundraisers and outreach that his Masonic crew have going on throughout the year and we saw this as a great way to get the most out of the contribtuions we can raise….”Bang for the Buck”.
Mansfield Masonic Lodge Giving
Here are just a few things they are doing in the community: scholarships to senior students for college, healthy teeth packets to elementary schools, backpacks of food for needy children, holiday dinners and presents to less fortunate families and endless support to the Shriners and Scottish Rite hospitals. As you can see, these guys can put any amount of contribution to great use and we feel fortunate that we can help in our own biker way.
This 2,000 mile ride is a lot of interstate but, we have thrown a twist into this one. In fact 308 twists in 11 miles; that’s right we are doing the famous Dragon’s Tail. What makes this a real challenge is, is that the Dragon’s Tail is just about right in the middle of the ride; so you have to figure out your timing. Do you ride short the first day and make up the miles the second day, so you can do the Dragon’s Tail in day light or do you push it the first day and try to do it during dusk hours? Your call.

This BikerMonkey ride is different than most. First of all, you can earn two certificates this time, rather than just the Iron Butt Association certification. That’s right, your registration of $50.00 as a rider or $25.00 as a passenger will qualify you once you successfully complete the ride a BikerMonkey certificate and rider’s pin! Of the gross proceeds, 50% will be donated on your behalf to the Mansfield Masonic Lodge and 10% of the total proceeds will be going to the Big Guy’s house..
This ride will also qualify you for a SaddleSore 2,000, however, this is an additional $50.00; which is IBA’s cost for processing not ours. If there are any price breaks given based on number of riders from the $50.00 registration, we will include 100% of the difference to the Mansfield Masonic Lodge as additional funds raised. If you choose to qualify for the SaddleSore 2,000, then simply include this payment with your registration and we will take care of all of the paperwork for you and submit it on your behalf. You will in turn receive the IBA certification, pin and IBA backplate once IBA has qualified the ride details.
Let’s recap shall we?
We are talking for $100.00, you get….. 2 certifiicates, 2 riding pins and a license backplate.
Or for $50.00, you get…. a very cool BikerMonkey Certifiicate and a riding pin.
Either way you go, you get awesome fellowship with some crazy extreme biker peeps, bragging rights and self satisfaction that you have helped a great group!
