Port Dover Motorcycle Rally
Friday, May 13, 2022, 05:00pm

Port Dover’s Friday the 13th had its beginning in 1981. It began innocently enough on November 13, 1981.

The story goes that Chris Simons suggested to a few motorcycle buddies that they meet for a few beers at the Commercial Hotel (today known as Angelo’s of Dover). Word spread about the get-together so that Friday evening on November 13, 1981 about 25 guys showed up. They had a great time and someone suggested “let’s meet every month when there is a Friday the 13th.” More came to party in Port Dover on the next Friday the 13th. And, as they say, the rest is history.

It was in 1971 when George Simons gave his son Chris a Rupp minibike that he could never have imagined that gift would be the beginning of a life-long passion for bikes.

Since that Rupp machine, Chris Simons has owned many motorcycles. He knows bikes inside out and front to back. At one time he operated a well-known bike shop in Port Dover called “Bikers’ Delight”.
