NW Fire Velo will be riding with our National Chapter, Fire Velo this summer for 'Ride for America 9-11' starting August 1, 2021 from Santa Monica, California. A total of 15 firefighters will be riding and NW Fire Velo is honored to have five members selected to ride across the country in remembrance of those who lost their lives on that fateful morning almost 20 years ago and lives lost to related illnesses.
It will take them through 14 states over 3,000 miles and an elevation gain of 101,482 feet. These riders will give everything they have on this cross-country ride in remembrance. Cyclists will stop to pay their respects at the Oklahoma City National Memorial and Museum, Flight 93 National Memorial in Somerset County Pennsylvania, The Pentagon and finally arriving in NYC at the 9/11 Memorial and Museum on September 9, 2021.
