JOURNEY's NEAL SCHON To Lead Legends Ride To Kick Off The Sturgis Motorcycle Rally

Avid motorcyclist and famed guitarist Neal Schon will help lead the fifth annual Legends Ride on Monday August 6 to kick off the Sturgis Motorcycle Rally in South Dakota.

Schon, along with actress Kristy Swanson, legendary motorcycle daredevil Robbie Knievel and iconic custom motorcycle builders Arlen, Cory and Zack Ness, will be joining hundreds of riders at the event in support of the Black Hills Special Olympics and the Sturgis Motorcycle Museum & Hall of Fame.

Led by Schon, the Legends Ride departs Deadwood on a 55-mile guided tour of the scenic canyons of the Black Hills to a reception at the Sturgis Buffalo Chip. After the ride and catered reception, JOURNEY will take over the main stage of the Sturgis Buffalo Chip to unleash their hits such as "Wheel In the Sky", "Anyway You Want It" and "Don't Stop Believing".

"The Legends Ride is a great opportunity to spend the day on my bike with some good friends and fans for a great cause," says Neal Schon.

The Legends Ride has raised more than $240,000 for the local charities since its inception four years ago. 100% of riders contributions go to benefit programs such a new bus and fuel for the Special Olympics travel needs. The new bus will be unveiled at this year’s Legends Ride.

JOURNEY's 2012 tour is scheduled through December, with most dates featuring special guests Pat Benatar featuring Neil Giraldo and LOVERBOY.
