The 2nd annual Pink the Basin Motorcycle Rally this Saturday will kick off a month’s worth of activities and events in West Texas to bring awareness to the free mammogram program and breast cancer. Organizers are hoping to get at least 200 riders this weekend. Riders will meet at 8 AM at the Legacy Harley-Davidson Shop, 12100 W. Hwy. 80 East in Odessa, Texas. There will be 2 routes for riders. The group will head to Andrews from the shop and then split heading east and west before returning to Odessa to complete an approximate 2-hour trip. The first ride will leave at 9 AM Entry fees are $30 and $15 per additional rider. All proceeds will be donated to the free mammogram program through Pink the Basin, Inc. Refreshment stops will be provided as well as a “Pink the Basin” pin and T-shirt. A free lunch has been donated by Legacy Harley-Davidson for participants, White said.
