'Bikes on the Bricks' to be held this weekend

Posted: Updated:

(09/12/12) - Get ready for a whole lot of noise bouncing off the bricks of downtown Flint this weekend.

"Some bikes will be louder than others, but you know, we're going to hear the rumble," said Paula Schemm, of Bikes on the Bricks.

It's all part of an expanded Bikes on the Bricks, with thousands of motorcycles and Harleys expected roll down Saginaw Street. Bikers will help raise money to support the Friends of Flint Police, Old News Boys, Young Marines and Brian's House.

"We are very proud that it's our sixth year. It just keeps growing and growing and growing," said Aileen England, of Bikes on the Bricks.

The feature attraction is Saturday's 54 mile ride.

"Last year we had over 900 motorcycles all lined up together. They don't stop. They'll go through Genesee and Shiawassee County. You get to see them coming downtown and it's for the average person," said Chris Everson, of Bikes on the Bricks.

Also on tap is a tattoo competition, stunt shows, fashion shows, live music and a police skills competition.

"Toronto police are coming, Ottawa Police are coming, and even the New York State Park Police are coming," Everson said.

As far as the dress code, there is a standard required uniform.

"Oh, yeah. Chaps. Leather, leather, leather, everywhere," England said.

Bikes on the Bricks festivities begin Friday night and run through Sunday.
