5TH ANNUAL SPD RIDE TO REMEMBER CHARITY BIKE RIDE | SEPTEMBER 16, 2017
Fallen, but not forgotten
On September 16th 2017, the Springfield Police Department will be joined by members of the community and other members of Law Enforcement and Public Safety agencies for the fifth annual Ride To Remember charity bicycle ride from Springfield to Boston, MA. This ride is open to the public but it does require the purchase of a rider’s jersey if you do not already have one. Rider’s jerseys can be purchased here.
- Proceeds from this charity event will go to the Officers Alain Beauregard & Michael Schaivina Memorial Soccer Field.
- The primary purpose of the bicycle ride is to raise public awareness of officers who have died in the line of duty.
- The secondary purpose is to raise funds for the Massachusetts Law Enforcement Memorial in Boston Massachusetts.
Check in time:
- Check in time will be between 5:45-6:30AM at the corner of Main Street and Boland Way.
- Riders will receive their event number and also will be receiving body markings on the morning of the ride.
- The adhesive bicycle frame number must be attached to your bicycle with the number clearly visible.
- Riders must have both body marking number and bicycle frame number to participate in the ride.
- These numbers will identify you as a participant and will assist medical and event officials in identifying the rider.
- Riders will depart Springfield for Boston promptly at 7:00AM. There are five fully supported rest stops. Over 25 police officers on Police Motorcycles escort all the riders along the way. The entire ride is fully SAG supported by Competitive Edge Bike Shop of East Longmeadow, MA. This is the best “Century Ride” in New England!
