MCCS Highlights: 3rd Annual Warrior Ride September 7th – 9th


MCCS will be hosting the 3rd Annual Warrior Ride from Sept. 7 – 9 at Lake Havasu. The 156-mile motorcycle ride to Lake Havasu’s London Bridge Resort will begin at Marine Corps Air Station Yuma on Sept. 7. During the weekend getaway there will be plenty of outdoor activities available such as golfing, boating, jet skiing, and other water sports. Attendees will also have an opportunity to enjoy some zip-lining excitement if they venture to Pirate Cove Resort, another organized ride destination, which is located near Needles, California. For the less outdoorsy, lounging around in the luxurious waterfront suite, bar-hopping and dance-clubbing are options as well.

Don’t have a motorcycle? No problem. Those interested in attending the event can either drive up to the site using their own vehicle, or climb aboard the MCCS vehicle which is available as a mode of transportation. Those who arrive with a bike will have the opportunity to compete in some “Best Bike” competitions.

Warrior Ride packages range from $90 to $140. Cost covers lodging for the weekend, and all meals on Saturday and breakfast Sunday. If you would like more information, visit or call 269-2848.
