Independence Gardens Hosts Bikers in Wonderland Charity Ride, Uniting Community for Fresh Food Acces

Independence Gardens played host to Bikers in Wonderland Eat. Ride. Give. — The Spring Ride on March 16th. The journey commenced at Maverick Harley-Davidson and concluded at Wayne Ferguson Plaza, where the city of Lewisville celebrated St. Paddy’s Day Texas Style.

Bikers in Wonderland is a family-friendly motorcycle rally known for its vibrant costumes, traversing the Dallas-Fort Worth area streets. Organized annually by Independence Gardens, a nonprofit dedicated to ensuring access to fresh food for all.

According to the Bikers in Wonderland Facebook page, the event merges the thrill of biking with the whimsy of St. Patrick’s Day, with all proceeds supporting Independence Gardens’ #freshfoodforall campaign.

Founder of Independence Gardens, Chonnie Richey, expressed her joy in participating in the event each year, emphasizing the generosity and support of the biker community towards Independence Gardens.

Since its inception in 2013, Independence Gardens has directly impacted over 10,000 children, as stated on the Bikers in Wonderland website. Richey sees collaboration with Lewisville and Bikers in Wonderland as a means to broaden their influence and reach a wider audience.

The Bikers in Wonderland event extends Independence Gardens' outreach, aiming to ensure every child, irrespective of their background, has access to fresh food, Richey believes.

The Bikers in Wonderland website mentions opportunities for participants and bikers to contribute financially towards providing fresh food to schools and communities.

Richey anticipates the return of the Bikers in Wonderland cruise to Lewisville for an even grander celebration in 2025.
