1ST EVER -Patriot Ride For Our Heroes, LA QUINTA CA ( NEAR PALM SPRINGS)100,50,25,10
Patriot Ride For Our Heroes was born last fall when Tim Esser took his personal ride to Twenty-Nine Palms with several wounded marines to deliver the American Flag. Their spark, energy, and enthusiasm set this new ride ablaze. Growing up with a father who was D-8 (8th day on Normandy), and a mother who was very involved with the USO, Tim has always wanted to have a ride that will benefit local charities associated with Active Military, Veterans, Fire, & Police, hence the Patriot Ride!
The event will be held in Old Town La Quinta, on October 26, 2013.
A bicycle event with hundreds / thousands of active military, veterans and other cyclists experiencing:
• Staged in the middle of Old Town La Quinta draped in a theme of red, white and blue
