Bicyclers Wanted For The 22nd Annual Ride For Missing Children
Be apart of this emotional ride that promotes awareness and hope in the plight of missing and exploited children across the country.
The Ride For Missing Children is the biggest annual fundraiser for the National Center of Missing & Exploited Children-NY/Mohawk Valley consisting of a 100-mile bike ride that stops at schools along the route to bring a message of safety. All Riders raise a minimum of $500 and to commit to the purpose of The Ride:
· To honor the memory of all missing children
· To raise public awareness of the plight of all missing and exploited children and the need for child safety education
· To raise funds to support the missing children poster distribution and community education
Registration is open for Summer/Fall New Rider Series. This training will teach first-time riders the basics of riding successfully. “As a new rider, you can gain proficiency on such intricacies as shifting gears, calling out obstacles and hydrating from the saddle, while riding with multiple people in a group setting,” explains Program Director Wendy Fical.
At the end of the training, the registered riders will gain a reserved spot in the 2018 Ride held on June 1, 2018.
If summer training isn’t an option, new riders are still encouraged to register sooner rather than later. “We want new riders to be on our communications list to receive all of the correspondence that goes out to the Ride Family and to stay up-to-date on all events that CNY Ride puts on this Summer and Fall,” says Fical.
