The Vintage Motorcycle Enthusiasts (VME) hosted their 30th annual Isle of Vashon motorcycle ride on Sunday, registering 800 motorcyclists for the event, according to organizer Jody Heintzman.

The club — dedicated to promoting motorcycle safety and awareness, as well as the enjoyment of classic motorcycles — discloses the date of the event only to its membership of some 500 motorcyclists to keep the ride low key and dedicated to old bikes.

Heintzman, a Vashon resident, expressed appreciation to the community for hosting the event, the Sportsmen’s Club for providing the location of the afternoon festivities and the Vashon Grapplers for selling hot dogs and hamburgers there. VME contributed $500, a portion of its proceeds from the day, to the Vashon Maury Community Food Bank.
