The Ride To Remember

Hi mom! I fell in with some new friends. I think it's ok because some of my old friends fell in with them too...

The Ride to Remember

On Saturday, September 25, at 8:00 a.m., a bicycle ride will be held to honor Dr. Kevin Rogers. The ride will be escorted by the Sioux Falls police and will leave Colorado Technical University's campus at 3901 West 59th Street.

The bicyclists will ride from the CTU campus to the location where Dr. Rogers was killed in a bicycling accident. The round trip distance for the ride is exactly five miles.

A moment of silence will be held prior to the ride at 7:45 a.m. to honor Dr. Rogers and others who have recently died as a result of bicycling accidents. Dr. Rogers was a valued faculty member at CTU for a number of years.

After the ride, at 9:00 a.m., CTU will host food and bicycling fun in the campus parking lot.

Bicycling Safety 101 - Mike Christensen, a certified bicycling safety instructor, will discuss topics such as increasing the safety of roadway users, the importance of helmets, strategies for in-city riding, and the dangers of impaired or distracted driving.

Bicycle Repair 101 - Spoke-n-Sport is sponsoring a fun event that will focus on the importance of safe bicycles and quick checks to make sure your bicycle is ready for the road.

Sam Trebilcock will also have mini-bike rodeo activities available for children at the post-ride event.

Please Plan to Attend! And Ride!
