Motorcyclists ride to honor Anchorage biker

ANCHORAGE –

Hundreds of motorcycle riders revved up their engines Friday to mourn another tragic loss.

They hit the road in honor of Elaine Loew, 63, who was killed last weekend in a crash on the Glenn Highway.

Two others died in that same accident, but Elaine’s husband Paul survived.

He joined others riding motorcycles to her funeral as a celebration of her life.

Friends say Elaine loved to ride and she’d be happy to see her biking family come together.

“This is just our opportunity to honor her and to do something to show Paul that we support him. We’re here to support each other because what we are is a big family,” said Dia Matteson, a longtime friend of Elaine’s.

May is motorcycle safety month. Elaine’s family and friends want to remind all drivers to be extra alert to help keep riders safe.
