The 2012 Chick-Fil-A Ride for Heroes and Patriots Festival is next Saturday, September 8th. Register by today, September 1, to get the 2012 Ride for Heroes t-shirt. The ride start and festival have been moved to Mountain Shadows Park because of concerns of having a large group at Glen Eyrie after the Waldo Canyon Fire.
There will be 3 rides starting at 8 AM. The Heroes Challenge Ride is 28 miles with 2,200 feet of climbing through Mountain Shadows and Peregrine. The Patriots’ Ride is a scenic 14-mile ride along the Pikes Peak Greenway Trail and Monument Creek. Thie Kids Ride is 1 mile around Mountain Shadows Park and is free.
You don’t want to miss this year’s Ride. Join Ride Ambassadors Chris Carmichael and family along with hundreds of other cyclists as we honor our heroes in the fire, police, EMS and military. Jerry Marr with the US Forest Department will be helping to present the awards. Lots of great guests and performances planned for Patriots’ Festival.
