Edward Winterhalder Attends The Academy Of Country Music Awards Show & Charity Harley Ride

Edward Winterhalder, celebrity biker and author of books about the biker lifestyle, has just returned from Las Vegas, Nevada, where he participated in the 5th annual Montgomery Gentry Academy of Country Music Charity Ride, held on May 17, 2008.

This year the riders, led by Eddie Montgomery and Troy Gentry, rode about 60 miles from Las Vegas up in to the mountains near Mount Charleston, where they had lunch with the more than 1,000 bikers that rode with them, to raise money for the Academy of Country Music’s Charity Fund.

Along with American Gladiator star Hollywood “Wolf” Yates, country music stars Lady Antebellum, Little Big Town, Craig Morgan, James Otto, Bluefield, Carolina Rain, Keith Anderson, Trick Pony alumni Heidi Newfield and Ira Dean, Cody McCarver, The Road Hammers, The Roys, Stephen Cochran, Emma Mae Jacob, Richie McDonald and Sarah Buxton were among those who took part in the benefit, which kicked off at Las Vegas Harley-Davidson and ended at Fremont Street in downtown Las Vegas.

A Not-So-Easy Ride

Former Bandido Now Focuses On His Book, Businesses, Family Life

May 7, 2008

He was known as "Connecticut Ed" in the Bandidos Motorcycle Club, where he served for years as an organizer and international ambassador. Outlaw biker is one of many hats worn by North Branford native Edward Winterhalder. Others have included musician and songwriter, motorcycle and heavy equipment mechanic, husband and father, business owner and author.

Winterhalder's new book, "The Assimilation" (ECW Press, $24.95), is due out in June. Co-authored by Wil De Clercq and subtitled "Rock Machine Become Bandidos — Bikers United Against the Hells Angels," the book details Winterhalder's efforts to take Canadian bikers into the Bandidos' fold amid a bloody war in Quebec.

That effort ultimately failed, and for various reasons, Winterhalder quit the Bandidos in 2003. It was a bitter split, but Winterhalder, 52, says he's happy now that the club has no claim on his time.

The self-described workaholic — who lives in Owasso, Okla., with his wife, Caroline, and 15-year-old daughter, Taylor — heads eight businesses under the banner Blockhead City (, including construction, finance and entertainment companies. He's also recorded several albums under the name "Warren Winters," has written and contributed to other books about the biker life and is now marketing a new TV series about real bikers.
