WHY WE RIDE
Patrick Wanninkhof lived for adventure, for bicycles, for social justice. While on a charity cross-country cycling trip in summer 2015, he was killed by a distracted driver.
This ride is a celebration of his life.
We're riding our bicycles 8000 miles from Deadhorse, Alaska to Key West, Florida. The ride serves a few purposes: to fundraise for his upcoming learn-to-bicycle nonprofit, to share stories of his life, and to grieve. It's exactly the adventure Patrick would have embarked on. So, join us. Whether on your bike for a few hours of riding, at your house to host us, or simply to spread the word, we would love for you too to Ride On.
