a family of bikers and difference makers

We’re proud to be the world’s largest single-day motorcycle ride supporting the Ronald McDonald House Charities. The RMH Ride is held annually in New York Mills, MN on the second Saturday of June.

In total, the RMH Ride has raised close to $2 million over the past 20+ years for the Red River Valley Ronald McDonald House Charity.

How it started…

The RMH Ride started in 2002 when a family friend was experiencing hardship while their child was sick, and stayed at the Ronald McDonald House of the Red River Valley. We started with just 15 members and raised $3,300 our first year.

How it’s going…

The Ride has continued annually since 2002 and has expanded to include other annual events like our Kick Off Party and Fun Run.  We are grateful to the overwhelming generosity of New York Mills and surrounding communities, event goers, volunteers, and event staff who have made this event possible year after year.

Collecting pop tabs is a great way to teach kids about philanthropy and the importance of recycling while raising funds at the same time. Collecting pop tabs is an easy way for people of all ages to support the Ronald McDonald House and know they are making a difference for families and children.

With all our efforts combined, we collect thousands of gallons of pop tabs annually at the RMH Ride!


1 lb = 1,267 tabs

1 gallon = 5,000 tabs
