"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."
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!
Rider Pledge $300 ($250 if you recruit a new rider, $50 reciprocal rider).
Register now and start your fundraising early! It's easy on Active.com.
Training Rides (Orientation/Safety)
Orientation rides will begin in April. New Riders are required to participate in at least 2 of these rides. The purpose of these rides is to learn how to ride safely in a group. Endurance training should be done on your own as well.
