The Ride Ends for The Trail of Tears

1 ride endsUPDATE:  11:06 pm EST.  USRiderNews was informed by Bill Cason that he is not ending the ride because of the politics or any reason other than he feels the original goals and mission of the Ride have been achieved.  USRiderNews regrets any reporting that may have led the reader to assume otherwise.   - Editor

Trail of Tears Motorcycle Ride founder Bill Cason has called an end to the historic and popular September ride.    Cason is the original founding member of the ride that has originated from downtown Chattanooga for the past 20 years.  In his letter, Cason said, "On behalf of the entire Board of Directors of the Trail of Tears Remembrance Motorcycle Ride, I want to announce that we are at the End of The Trail for our annual charity motorcycle ride.  I would like to take this opportunity to thank everyone for 20 great years and your support of our organization as we remembered those ancestors forcibly removed from their homelands in the east to what is now present day Oklahoma."

In the 20 years of the ride, Cason and his volunteers provided thousands of dollars of scholarship funds to Native America children,  and placed Historical Markers in many areas along the Trail.

      • Terry, Bill's letter is specific. The ride that leaves from Chattanooga, the ride he started and has led for 20 years is ending. There's nothing on the official website that disputes this.

      • This is not the true trail of tears ride. This is the ride started by some people in Alabama when they couldn't steel Bill's. There's is not a non-profit because the moneys raised goes into their pockets. No educational funds what so ever. I wont ride it because they are liars and thief's.

    • Yes Charles. We have a gentleman here locally that is very knowledgeable and can get you in contact with someone who can help you track your native American Heritage. I will e-mail you his contact information.
