KINGMAN - Christine Allen isn't taking any chances Sunday when she leads about 30 women bikers along Route 66 from Flagstaff to Las Vegas to raise money for injured veterans.

"I've got it all planned," said Allen, who lives in Golden Valley. "I drove to Flagstaff on Sunday to check it out, and I went to Las Vegas this week to make sure the parking garage at Harrah's will hold 30 motorcycles. It's a lot of work to prepare and I've been driving myself nuts with it, but I'm glad I did it. I'm all ready for them."

Allen, 54, volunteered recently to help the women find their way through Kingman because she supported their cause. The Women's Freedom Ride runs for 12 days from Charleston, S.C., to San Diego. Allen is president of the Women in the Wind Cactus Cuties, a local group of about 15 women bikers.

The Women's Freedom Ride takes place annually to promote women riders while raising money for severely wounded veterans and their caregivers through the Independence Fund. Women from across the nation gather at various points along the route to ride with the group for an hour or the entire length of the trip.

Allen, a mail carrier for the U.S. Postal Service, will be riding to Flagstaff Sunday, spending the night and leading the group along Route 66 through Kingman Monday on their way to Las Vegas. Allen said they will stop at Yesterday's Restaurant in Chloride, where the Cactus Cuties will buy lunch.

The riders will spend two days in Las Vegas, but Allen said she has to return Monday because she has to work the next day. Allen said she is looking for women bikers to ride with her and the group from Flagstaff to Las Vegas. Interested women bikers can meet her at 9:30 a.m. Sunday at Maverik Country Store, 3480 E. Andy Devine Ave. in Kingman.

"This is for a good cause, and they're sister bikers," said Allen, who rides a Harley Davidson Sportster 1200. "I agreed to lead the Women's Freedom Ride because I hate to think of them not knowing where they're going when they get to this area.

"I'm glad to help them along their way."

Be On The Look Out For This Bike & Trailer Stolen Last Night In Amarillo TX
From
"The Women's Freedom Ride"
The Women's Freedom Ride has some very
upsetting news. Tonight, in Amarillo Texas, we woke a little bit ago to find our trailer has been stolen. Gails bike was also on the trailer it was padlocked and everything on it was padlocked. This trailer has traveled with us across the United States and has messages that have been written on it as we went. These messages were too our soldiers and to the lady riders. As you can imagine we are all very hurt by this. I cannot imagine the type of person that would steal a trailer with those messages written on it









Call (806) 378-9402 or (806) 378-4251 if seen.
