LAS VEGAS, Nev. — There's no better way to finish out a convention experience in Las Vegas than to roar and ride out of town. For attendees at the 2017 International LCT Show, the Limo Patriot Ride provides that opportunity on March 15. 

The third annual ride, which raises money for the Semper Fi Fund, got a boost recently when the limousine operators who organize it received the Carla Boroday Humanitarian Award at the annual LCT People's Choice Awards on Nov. 14. Since it launched after the 2015 International LCT Show, Limo Patriot Ride has raised $40,000. 

"This is a great cause and many people extend their LCT experience to go to the party the night before and then the ride," said Barry Gross of Reston Limousine in Sterling, Va., one of the event's organizers. "It also keeps people there through the end of the Show."

Participants rent bikes from Eagle Rider Motorcycles of Las Vegas and then go on a scenic touring ride for several hours in the surrounding region, which includes the Hoover Dam and Lake Mead. While Harley-Davidson brand motorcyles are the most popular, riders can choose from among Triumph, Indian, sport bikes, and various cruisers. About 50 riders participated in the each of the last two events.

The Ride formally kicks off the night before at a pre-ride party at the Venetian pool bar on March 15 from 7 p.m. to 10 p.m., following the conclusion of the three-day International LCT Show at 5 p.m.
