Ride for Deputy Earl Dyer set for Saturday

The second annual Ride for Deputy Earl Dyer is set for Saturday at the Wilson County Fairgrounds.

Dyer has a medical condition that keeps him from supporting his family. The event will raise money to support him.

The Lebanon chapter of the Roughnecks Motorcycle Club will sponsor the ride.

The Roughnecks is a nonprofit group of active and retired law enforcement, military and public safety personnel.

Check-in for the event will begin at 10 a.m. with the ride starting at noon at the fairgrounds. The event cost is $20 per bike and $5 per passenger.

After a scenic ride through Wilson, Smith and DeKalb counties, there will be a live deejay, a raffle and a 50-50 cash raffle.

Lunch, which will include a barbecue sandwich, chips and drinks, will be available for a donation.

All proceeds from the ride will be donated to Dyer.

“We don’t put a dollar sign on what we want to raise, because anything is helpful,” said Lebanon Roughnecks president Rob Bates. “There’s never enough money. It’s an ongoing illness. We’re very passionate about this project, because he’s a public servant, and he’ll probably never be able to work again.”

For more information, call Bates at 615-210-9570 or Scott Lorden at 615-394-9302.
