Throughout history, philanthropic endeavors have been carried out by benevolent tycoons, motherly nuns, and rough-and-tumble bikers with hearts of gold. Help out these motorfolk of mercy with today's Groupon: for $20, you get one general-admission ticket to the 14th annual Rip's B.A.D. Ride presented by Bikers Against Diabetes and held at Oak Canyon Park in Orange on Sunday, June 5 from 10 a.m.–4 p.m. (up to a $40 value).
Bikers Against Diabetes takes aim against a chronic illness affecting more than 25 million Americans with a fun-filled charity event, sporting live bands and the finest two-wheeled road warriors. As participants cheer along the brave bikers, their ear buds feast on the sweet tunes of rock 'n' roll and traditional motorcycle-rustling ballads from live bands such as Lee Rocker of the Stray Cats, Creedence Relived, and Rising Water. Along with admission ($35 in advance, $40 at gate), buyers of today's deal will receive a commemorative pin as well as a mouthmoistening lunch.
Opportunities for entertainment draw in fairgoers throughout the day, including a vendor village, bike games, a pin-up-girl contest, and a health-screening pavilion. Leap upon the chance to win unique and custom-made trophies in a bike and car show moderated by celebrity-guest judges from the industry and wisecracking sidecars.
Though Bikers Against Diabetes does provide discounted tickets through other offers, this Groupon is still the best deal.
