If you are “new” to the Ride for Missing Children, you must complete a minimum of 2 Orientation Rides to be certified to ride.
Orientation rides start in August. They will be held every Saturday & Sunday leading up to the Ride – departing at 8:00am from The Bikery on Van Buren Road in Baldwinsville. Please arrive by 7:30am to check-in with a shepherd and prepare to leave with the group. Orientation rides are provided to educate riders on how to ride safely in a group. They will be approximately 20-25 miles long. Endurance training should be done on the riders own time.
If you have participated in another RFMC this year you are eligible to ride for a reciprocal rider fee of $50.
