Also we'll be able to talk to\nmany of the volunteers for the La Honda Fire Department. This get to\nknow each other time can foster much more cooperation and help for all\ninvolved!\n\nNot to mention all the motorcycle vendors and geat deals you can get.\n\nThe spark that ignited this was due to the accidents and injuries we\nwere having in the area. Something had to be done about it. Dr. Harry\nWong, chiropractor who practices in Redwood City, representing\nmotorcyclists and Larry Whitney the captain of the La Honda Volunteer\nFire Department got together and found wide acceptance of the event\nfrom various agencies and community leaders.\n\nDoc Wong was already involved in motorcycle safety, holding free safety\nriding clinics in the area for the last 11years and has been very\nactive in the motorcycling community. Larry Whitley as a volunteer\nfireman has been the first responder at the scene of many motorcycle\naccidents over the years. Many riders are totally unaware of the\nongoing efforts of these well trained volunteers who are there when we\nneed them.\n\nThe La Honda Fire Brigade was founded in 1953. Today it provides fire\nprotection, along with the CDF/San Mateo County Fire Department, to\nover 138 square miles of the San Mateo County Southcoast. The Brigade\nis one of the county's last all-volunteer fire departments.\n\nLarry has commented that he's amazed that the feedback has been so\npositive in support for this event from residents and other agencies.\n\nSo the goal of the event is to have a great time and foster\nunderstanding between all involved and to gain knowledge that would\nenhance our enjoyment of motorcycling by improving our skills and\ngaining knowledge that would help us survive out on the roads!\n\nThe cost is free and all are welcome!\n\nIf you have a bike that you'd like to show, e-mail Dr. Wong for entry\ninformation.\n\nFor more information go to [URL="http://www.docwong.com"]www.docwong.com[/URL] or e-mail Doc Wong at\n[email][/email].\n\n\nRide street, ride track, ride dirt, trials.....ride.....well!\n\nDoc Wong\nActive Life Medical-Chiropractic and Natural Medicine\n1391 Woodside Road, Ste 200, Redwood City, CA (650) 365-7775\n\nCheck out the stuff on the Doc Wong (Free) Riding Clinics on my web\nsite!
