Why We Ride

To give back to the community, just as their parents had taught them, two Liberty boys, Jeff Heishman and Kevin Broderick, each started a benefit motorcycle ride. Jeff started the “Janey Heishman Ride” in memory of his mother. Kevin started “The Over the Next Hill Ride for Immacolata Manor” in memory of his father, Robert Broderick. As there were sometimes conflicts in ride dates, Kevin and Jeff decided in 2003 to combine the two rides and the “Janey’s Over The Next Hill Ride for Immacolata Manor” was born. During the past sixteen years, more than 5,500 riders have participated in Janey’s Ride, raising more than $255,000.

Though Janey’s Ride means a day of camaraderie with fellow bikers and a chance to enjoy the freedom of the road, for those who work, volunteer and live at Immacolata Manor this ride means so much more. Janey’s Ride helps guarantee that Immacolata Manor can provide individualized supportive servuces to more than 90 individuals with developmental disabilities. The supports provided by Immacolata Manor cost over $125 per day per resident. Our goal is to raise $60,000.00 through corporate sponsorships, increased rider participation, in-kind donations, and rider over-the-top giving.

Before the ride starts, take a minute to meet the wonderful men and wome we serve at Manor. They will be eating breakfast, visiting vendor booths, judging bikes in the Bike Show, passing out bottled water, and hosting a tour of their home at Empress House. This family-friendly event features a biscuit and gravy benefit breakfast, bike show, complimentary lunch in Lathrop, dice roll, silent auction, and more. Everyone enjoys the celebratory finish back at Immacolata Manor, featuring entertainment, awards, and prizes.

This is a group ride, which means everyone starts and finishes together. We have a crew of experienced Road Captains who make sure the ride is smooth, safe and organized. We also have EMT’s and a Chase Vehicle (sponsored by LCC Powersports) for those unexpected dilemmas. Janey’s Ride welcomes all riders and all brands of motorcycles. Novice riders are invited to ride at the front of the ride behind Ed’s Posse (please review our Rider Etiquette).  In the case of unfavorable weather come ride day, this event will continue rain or shine!
