Ponder, Others To Attend Vikings Ride For Life Motorcycle Rally This Weekend

Posted by Mike Wobschall on July 17, 2012 – 9:34 am

The 2012 Minnesota Vikings Ride for Life Motorcycle Rally will be held this Saturday, July 21 and QB Christian Ponder headlines the contingent of current and former players who will be on-hand.

The 18th annual Ride for Life, which benefits the Vikings Children’s Fund (VCF), will begin at the Blue Heron Grill in Hugo, Minnesota.  Ponder will be joined there by teammates Toby Gerhart, John Sullivan and D’Aundre Reed, along with Vikings alumni Ted Brown, Stu Voigt and others. The Minnesota Vikings Cheerleaders and team mascot Viktor will also be present.

Day of Event registration opens at 9:00 a.m. at the Blue Heron Grill and at Hinckley’s Amphitheater at 12:30 p.m. The cost to participate is a $15 donation to the Vikings Children’s Fund. Over $20,000 in prizes including $5,000 in cash, will be awarded.

At 1:00 p.m., all motorcycles will depart Hugo on a 50-mile trek to Hinckley’s Outdoor Amphitheater where the prizes will be awarded. Non-motorcyclists are welcome to participate in the Ride for Life by following the group to Hinckley. The event is supported by the Minnesota State Patrol and local law enforcement.

For more information, visit http://www.vikings.com or call the event line at (952) 828-6577.

Since 1978, nearly $10 million has been raised for the VCF with over $5 million allocated to support research at the University of Minnesota’s Department of Pediatrics.

    The content post limit is being addressed. New Blogs will be very light until the week before training camp begins since staff is currently in their offseason. Future site options being considerd are chat options that will allow people who want to banter to and fro to do so endlessly. The current purpose for the blog site is for people do discuss the topic of football or whatever the original blog post contains.

    We will also be moving foward on the Video and Audio post. These seem to be very fan friedly.

    As I can not speak for the entire Vikings organization, but I can speak from the site personel, your frustrations are felt and we are trying to resolve them as quickly as possible.

    Be sue and check out this weeks Monday morning mailbag and don’t forget to submit your question for the pick 6 which should be posted later this weeks.

    Thank and Go Vikings.

    Im expecting a solid year out of Ponder. Added 20lbs of muscle and said he was able to keep his flexibility by doing yoga. I just hope the increase in muscle didnt take away his speed but he||, at least hes stronger.

    Anyways he should be a little above average this year. The o-line is looking solid, Toby is reliable, Percy is a stud, Jenkins is consistent, Simpson is good, and Kyle Rudolph is the truth!

    24tds/9ints, 3200yds.

    Nicely said. If Ponder can step up, even a little, the offense should be starkly different this year,

    Nice to see some football talk back on the blog again. I think ponders ability to throw on the run is his best asset. Everyone needs to watch his sports science video. Lets all hope his extra muscle allows him to take more abuse that never takes place. Lets go O-line lets give him some time so we can see what he can do.

    I never believed that one Spencer. But he has a good chance at starting in one of the LB positions now if he is able to impress. I sure hope he does, because our LB crew looks to be very questionable this year.

    @Titus,

    You just made another false allegation.

    Who was it that made the all the REPEAT GM posts. Fred L. Jones.

    I have always been the same guy. It is YOU that have changed.

    You are badly mistaken!!!

    Spencer- I thought he would be a decent player. Before his broken shoulder he was pretty solid. We will see he is gonna play safety for the Bears.

    Another guy I was high on was Josh Norman and he is set to start for the Panthers.

    Although in Hardin’s case it was more of late round value because he was certain to fall because of the injury. Plus the lack of depth at safety for the Vikings, but taking into account the addition of Smith and Blanton Hardin would have be a wasted pick.

    Next year’s free agency will be bad for us. Do we sign Percy and lose a ton of players to free agency? I would like to see Griffen in Purple again.

    Jared, Kevin and Adrian are earning the most and they deserve it. But where else is the whole money going? Is Kevin Williams or Jared Allen going to be traded or even A.D.? I don’t think so, but you never know.

    As much as I know that charity events are part of the program for players, I really wonder about the safety of any of the players taking part in a motorcycle ride. I understand that there are many responsible safe motorcycle riders, but it is still less safe than cars. If anything would happen to a player on such a ride, the fans would be very upset that something like that could be avoided. Just sayin’

    @Scott I don’t think that Ponder would risk injury for charity. I am sure he’s done some riding before. There is always risks riding a bike, but if you’re experienced that can be reduced.

    @Mathiias I am not sure when Kevin Williams contract is up, but I think this a big year on the Vets remaining on the team. You either produce and lead or you’re out. I don’t see how Spielman has much to lose he’s already started the youth movement and if we have another poor season I see more veterans cut.
