Motorcycle enthusiasts to converge in Port Dover

Thousands of motorcycle enthusiasts are expected to converge on Port Dover today for Friday the 13th.

The tradition goes back to November of 1981 when a Port Dover motorcycle shop owner got together on Friday the 13th.

The events have drawn in excess of 100-thousand people in recent years and are a major source of income for Port Dover businesses.

Provincial police say they're preparing for around 80 thousand celebrants and will be there to ensure safety and to help with traffic.
