Riding Into History, one of America's premier motorcycle events, will return to the World Golf Village near St. Augustine, Florida on May 17, 2008. The event will feature Charity Rides, a Concours d'Elegance, the Biker's Ball and the Historic Ride. All of the proceeds from Riding Into History will benefit the Buddy Check 12 breast cancer charity, a partnership between Baptist Health and First Coast News.

The event is presented by the Riding Into History Committee, which is comprised of volunteer members from organizations such as the BMW Motorcycle Owners of Northeast Florida (BMWNEF) and the Historic Motorcycle Society (HMS).

Between 300 and 400 antique, vintage and classic motorcycles from all over the country are expected to enter the Concours, which will feature Racy Competition Motorcycles. Thousands of spectators are once again expected to enjoy the event which also includes exhibitors, entertainment, clubs and a variety of food. Admission is still only $10 at the gate for the Concours. Various packages are available for the Biker's Ball and the Charity Rides.

The Grand Marshal for this year's event will be Mert Lawwill, former Grand National Champion and star of On Any Sunday. He will be available to meet patrons at the Concours and he will speak at The Biker's Ball.

Kel Carruthers, 2007 Grand Marshal said after the event that he "Enjoyed it so much he would like to attend every year."
