For the 14th consecutive year, Texas Roadhouse restaurants will host a motorcycle ride to benefit Homes for Our Troops. The Augusta restaurant at 26 Whitten Road will host a ride Sunday, Aug. 6.

The event will begin with registration and breakfast from 8 to 10 a.m. Riders will depart from the restaurant at 10 a.m. The destination is Central Maine Harley-Davidson at 2387 U.S. Route 2 in Hermon. A lunch and concert is planned from noon to 2 p.m.

There will be multiple rides nationwide including one in Bangor. Organizers expect more than 8,000 riders to participate nationwide and would like to raise $300,000. Over the last 13 years, the restaurant has raised more than $1 million for Homes for Our Troops.

To register, visit HFOTUSA.org/bikerun. Registration will be open the morning of the ride at the start location. Cost is $30 per single driver, $50 for a driver and passenger, or $10 per person for non-riders (barbecue only). Fee includes a Texas-sized breakfast and barbecue lunch provided by the restaurant, musical entertainment and raffles. The first 300 people to register will receive an event T-shirt.
