Why Ride?

"We ride to raise awareness for the injustices that are committed against our children. We ride as a community and as a family to make a difference. We ride to enjoy the camaraderie of friends new and old. We ride no matter how hot, how cold, how rainy, snowy, hilly or flat - we ride together as a family. We learn quickly that no matter how hard it is for us physically, we persevere for those families among us that have suffered from not knowing where their children are. We ride for those families who need us and who gain strength from us. We ride to raise awareness and show support for those families whose children are or have been in harm’s way. We become an extension of their families, and along the way, they become an extension of ours."

NEW Venue
We are currently working on an east side Ride Route from Total Sports Experience in East Rochester (435 West Commercial Street). This will enable us to reach many more schools on the east side.  More information on the Route and Schools Stops coming soon!
