New Milford resident Don Clady of Connecticut Cruise News will team with Ben Stochmal and the Special Forces Motorcycle Club to lead the state leg of the event.

The local portion of the event will feature a car and bike show and a poker run starting at Harley-Davidson Buell on Federal Road in Danbury and stopping at Southworth on Route 7 in New Milford, Smiley's Hot Dogs in Thomaston and Doc's Motorcycle in Waterbury.

Registration will be 9 to 11 a.m. Registration for the bike and car show will be $20. Call 860-354-5110 or e-mail
