You don’t have to own a motorcycle to get a ticket for the annual charity ride on Saturday, May 25.

Manitobans who register for the fifth annual Manitoba Motorcycle Ride for Dad -- even if they don’t wear leather, have a helmet or wheels -- are as eligible as riders for prizes at the event.

Organizers are asking Manitobans to register for the ride, even if they don’t have a motorcycle, in a push to set a record of 1,000 registrations. In 2012, there were 837 riders.

To register, you sign up to collect pledges, which is the point of the event.

Ed Johner, prostate cancer survivor and Motorcycle Ride for Dad spokesperson, says that anyone can register as a "Ride Champion" and take advantage of the day-long activities.

"There is no registration fee to be a Ride Champion," he said in a statement Tuesday.
