It is supposed to be warm so make sure we bring water and keep and eye on the rider next to you.
Please remember to bring your own flags in case Support Vehicle is not available.
As always, please stand with respect, and Make sure that Cell Phones are off or Silent and if you do need to make a call please step off the line and walk away from the line to answer.
Ride safe, obey the laws and remember the families are not on our mission, they are our mission.
These men and women stood for us so we could raise our families and proceed with our lives. If we can spare the time to show them our respect and gratitude then so be it. If we can’t go on this one just remember them while you are doing what their service allows us to do and go on the next one you can make. Do what you can (we can never do all that we want).
