FairTax to Make Inaugural Ride Across Western North Carolina
Grass Roots Supporter of the FairTax will Ride from Horse Shoe to Cornelius to raise awareness of the FairTax.
Horse Shoe, NC – Despite frigid temperatures across the country, Mike McLean will traverse 125 miles across the state on his Heritage Springer motorcycle, to promote the FairTax, a bill in congress aimed to reform the tax code on February 7th. In Cornelius, his final destination, he'll be joined by other FairTax supporters to raise awareness and enthusiasm during an event at Raceworld USA, home of Michael Waltrip Racing and other locales in the Magnolia Shopping Center.
About a dozen riders across NC have expressed interest in joining the ride, hoping we'll see an early spring warming for the event. If temperatures continue to remain low, it may be a lone rider through the mountains. Passing through Shelby, more riders and warmer weather are likely to meet him to finish the ride to Cornelius.
