Spike is excited to join the 2018 Exchange Club 48 State – 10 day ride to bring more awareness across the nation to the millions of kids abused annually in this country. He has been a part of Bikers Against Child Abuse (B.A.C.A.) since 2013, an organization which has a singular mission to empower abused kids not to live in fear. His goal for this ride is to support the Exchange Club as they increase awareness of their child abuse prevention programs. Additionally, Spike intends to make people aware of BACA’s mission and presence across the United States and 18 other countries.
Spike was raised in a military family, so he was born overseas and has lived in many states. He graduated from Claremont Men’s College and joined the IBM Corporation during his senior year. Spike held technical, sales and executive positions in IBM and retired from his last assignment in Beijing, China in 2012. Spike enjoys spending time with his family, fulfilling his BACA commitments to support abused kids and performing and teaching formation flying to other pilots.
A few weeks after Spike joined our group, he asked if his BACA brother, Easy, could ride with us too. How do you say no to a guy with a name like Easy? He’s got to be easy to get along with, right?
Easy is a joining the Exchange Club 48 State – 10 Day ride to bring awareness to the general public about our wounded friends, the abused kids across this great country. Easy has been riding with Bikers Against Child Abuse (B.A.C.A.) since 2012 and he considers it his highest honor to support these incredible kids.
Easy grew up in Bronx, NY and joined the Marine Corps at 17 years old. After his tour in Vietnam, he spend a decade in Indonesia learning their culture and studying their fighting art disciplines. Upon returning to the United States, Easy worked in a variety of security positions in several different industries.
Easy currently works for the State of Arizona. He is married with six children, 15 grand kids and five great grand kids. He enjoys spending time with his large family, riding with his BACA brothers and serving the needs of the most vulnerable.
