The Cycle Corps (a mini-bike unit) was formed and became an official Temple unit in 1969. Our motto is "We ride so kids can walk," and our mission is to support Kora Shriners by:
Current membership in the Cycle Corps is 20 with a listed maximum strength of 25. A prospective member must be a member in good standing of Kora Shriners and have a valid drivers license.
Each member will be assigned ( if possible) a 5 HP Rupp Mini-Bike and be required to purchase the units parade uniform and dress uniform. Some of these uniform parts are provided by the unit. Annual dues are $25.00.
Meetings of the Cycle Corps are held once a month. Practice drills are held once a week or once every two weeks on Thursdays at 6:30 PM, at a convenient local area. 75% attendance record of all the unit’s functions is required. The unit participates in approximately 12 parades, 1 competition and 4 ceremonials per year.
Entertainment and fund-raising projects are sponsored by the Kora Cycle Corps. Wives of the members are very supportive and wear distinctive jackets similar to the Corps uniform, with appropriate markings. The Kora Cycle Corps is one of the more active units at Kora Shriners, because of this, our services are always in demand.
