Breaking News: Alleged kidnapping incident investigated
ELMSDALE: Revitalizing Rehab is getting a boost, Hellbound style.
Hellbound Custom Cycles owners Mike and Doreen Coady are planning a Ride for Rehab, a motorcycle ride which will raise money for Revitalizing Rehab, a facility their family holds near and dear to their hearts.
After a snowboarding accident when he was just 16, the Coady’s son—Michael—was left paralyzed. Thanks to staff at the centre, Michael now lives a completely independent life as a college grad, who is taking his LSATs, the law school admission test.
To give back to the centre that has given so much to their family, the ride will take place on Sept. 27. The registration fee is $10, and the ride starts at 11 a.m. with a bbq to follow. Mike said he is happy they were able to get something planned for this year.
“I originally thought I would wait until next year,” he said. “We thought, well, they might not want a motorcycle run so Doreen made contact at the rehab centre and told them this is what we are thinking about doing and they were all about it.”
Besides the run, Coady said there will be prizes along the way.
“Two of my suppliers are going to donate prizes, and I’m going to put together a prize package,” he said. “The other mechanic who works with me does leather work so he is going to do up something to donate as well.”
Hellbound Custom Cycles has been operating in Elmsdale since late July, and Coady says the support from the local community has been great.
Because motorcycles have always been a passion for him, opening the shop was a labour of love. Open most evenings and weekends, Coady says more often than not, his hours of operation are merely a suggestion.
“Sometimes I actually get out of here at 9:30 p.m. like I’m supposed to, and sometimes it’s a lot later than that,” he said. “It all depends on what’s going on, before the wharf rat rally we were here to 2 in the morning.”
Hellbound also services ATVs, as well as all models of motorcycles. Coady said the time is already here to start thinking about winter maintenance.
