MASSENA — More than 160 riders from the Shamans Motorcycle Club, a Massena-based group made up of current and former fire and EMS personnel, hosted their ninth annual 9/11 remembrance ride on Saturday.

The ride covered about 110 miles and was followed by a cookout, party and silent auction.

Contributions were made at $20 per bike toward the Massena Rescue Dive Team in honor of Shaun O’Brien, a biker who organized many rides himself before he died several years ago at age 37.

This article is poorly researched and factually wrong. The Shamans did not put on the run out of Norwood, which had over 160 bike, that was the Spuds Run LLC. The Shamans did put on a 9/11 remembrance run out of Massena, but somehow this article mashed both runs into one. The recipient of the donations of the Spuds Run was Addie Green, a child with cancer.


pictures are correct but the story is all wrong and doesnt even make sense! So disheartening that the story took away from ALL the great things Spud's Run accomplished this year!
