14th Annual Hillbilly Christmas In July
HCIJ a non-profit organization based in Pikeville, Kentucky, that holds events throughout the year to benefit Shriners Hospitals for Children. One of the major events is the annual July motorcycle ride, which culminates in a drawing for a new Harley Davidson motorcycle.
The group starts in Pikeville, Kentucky, collects riders along the way and assembles at the Man-O-War Harley Store in Lexington for lunch. The group then proceeds — with police escort — to Shriners Hospitals for Children — Lexington. Last year approximately 600 motorcyclists participated in the bike parade.
The Johnson Law Office is a proud sponsor of HillBilly Christmas in July. Attorney Billy Johnson recognizes the importance of safety for motorcycle riders as they travel on behalf of this worthy cause.
