To make our children safer...one child at a time.
We ride 100-miles in one day, as one, unified team of riders, riding 2x2 at a 14-15 mile pace and escorted by local law enforcement in each jurisdiction. The Ride stops at schools along the route for educational rest stops, with silent tributes to missing children, recovered children and fallen officers along the way. These riders will join the group at lunch and finish the remainder of the route. Riders, their families and friends will be welcomed at the finish with a grand celebration!
In May of 1995, a team of bicyclists rode their bicycles from Central New York to the steps of our nation's capital, to promote public awareness on the plight of all missing children. They arrived in Washington, DC on National Missing Children's Day, May 25th, at distance of 529 miles. The Utica community continued the tradition of a Ride and because of this success, NCMEC/NY introduced the 100-mile Ride for Missing Children to the Rochester, Albany, Finger Lakes and Buffalo communities.
