This annual Memorial ride was designed to remember those we have lost to war, tragedy, and veteran suicide victims. Only 22 riders maximum are allowed to participate in this long distance Memorial ride as they travel 500 miles in 12 hours or less between Florida & Georgia. It is said that a person dies twice: 1st when they pass away, and second when they are forgotten. Because of this each rider rides in honor of a fallen hero to keep their memory alive to have their name and story remembered by all those who see the ride, or visit this Memorial and remembrance page. Please share the names, or contribute pictures and/or stories to help achieve this.
