80s cop show star to cruise into Beavercreek


Officer Francis Llewelyn “Ponch” Poncherello will cruise into town in a few days.

The uniform probably no longer fits, but here’s hoping Erik Estrada wears a pair of the awesome aviator sunglasses he wore on the classic show “CHiPs.”

Quaker Steak & Lube’s Beavercreek location will host a motorcycle ride featuring the actor 11 a.m. Saturday, May 4.

The event will benefit Safe Surfin’, an organization that works to prevent children from being victimized by Internet predators.

Registration is $20 per bike and starts at 8:30 a.m.

Estrada is of course most famous for his role as Ponch on the 70s and 80s show “CHiPs.”

Those who attend the ride will get a chance to meet Estrada, a reality show veteran.

There will be a 50/50 raffle, live music, breakfast and the first 50 riders to register will receive a commemorative patch and pin.

The restaurant chain will donate 20 percent of that day’s food sales to help Safe Surfin’.

Here’s how to go:

What: Motorcycle ride featuring actor Erik Estrada

Where: Quaker Steak & Lube, 3725 Presidential Drive, Beavercreek

When: 11 a.m. Saturday, May 4.
