A Bit of Background
Here at Portuguese American Road Riders, we know that sometimes all it takes to change the world is a little support. Since our founding in 2006, we have been determined to make an impact. The core of our efforts is to bring our members fresh ideas and passion to the range of activities we’re involved in. Through all of our rides and endeavors we hope to display the passion behind our beliefs.
“Kindness is the language which the deaf can hear and the blind can see”

One on One with our Road Captain
PARR Road Captain and Founder, Tony DaSilva.
Since May is Motorcycle Safety Month, We would like to dedicate it to our Road Captain and one of the Founders that always looks out for us and our riders. He shared how he founded the club in 2006. He said that in the early 2000s many Portuguese Americans in Lowell and the surrounding communities had an interest in riding motorcycles. At the time many riders gathered at places like the Blues Club, Reds Club, and the
4 Seasons Restaurant in Lowell MA. There were other rider groups in the area at the time but he didn’t like the way they were run. He decided, in collaboration with Walter Borges, to create their own club with the objective to help the kids in need from Portuguese families.Over the past 13 years, there have been numerous stories of success where PARR’s help made the difference in the lives of children.Tony described a case of a 7-year-old girl from New Hampshire who had a rare type of cancer in her stomach and they helped her and her family to raise funds for her treatment. Years later they are still in touch with the family and have learned that she is cured.
Thank you, Tony for all your dedication and contribution to PARR!
