Being in The Ride For Missing Children Rochester is a challenging, rewarding and humbling experience.


The Ride for Missing Children Rochester is not a one-day event, a mission to promote awareness is ongoing.


The Ride For Missing Children Rochester is a 100-mile bicycle ride throughout Monroe County.


Friday May 17, 2019
Total Sports Experience

Riders are asked to arrive at TSE by 6:45 AM, with an opening ceremony at 7:20 AM. Our 50-100 mile bicycle ride throughout Monroe County begins at 8:00 AM.

Along the route, the Riders, or “Friends of Missing Children”, will stop at targeted area schools to spread awareness on the plight of missing and exploited children. The schools and select stops along the route will serve as a rest stop for the Riders.

Family and friends should anticipate the Riders to arrive back at Total Sports Experience around 5:00 PM. All riders are invited to the closing ceremony and are encouraged to share in the celebration and enjoy food and beverage.


To participate as a Rider, you must be willing and capable of making several commitments.

NCMEC/NY introduced The Ride for Missing Children to the Rochester community in 2001. By 2002, our participation doubled, with 86 Riders taking part in the event. The Ride has experienced additional growth every year since with over 3,000 children receiving educational safety messages.

We ask that you raise at least $300 to help fund NCMEC/NY’s educational programs. If you recruit a NEW rider, you both pledge only $250 each. Wonderful incentive prizes for pledges over $400 will be available this year! All pledges must be in by May 15th.
