More: Patriot Ride For Our Heroes was born last fall when Tim Esser took his personal ride to Twenty-Nine Palms with several wounded marines.  Their spark, energy, and enthusiasm set this new ride ablaze.  Growing up with a father who was D-8 (8th day on Normandy), and a mother who was very involved with the USO, Tim has always wanted to have a ride that will benefit local charities associated with Active Military, Veterans, Fire, & Police, hence the Patriot Ride!

The event will be held in Old Town La Quinta, on October 26, 2013.  Imagine:

A bicycle event with hundreds / thousands of active military, veterans and other cyclists experiencing:

  • Staged in the middle of Old Town La Quinta draped in a theme of red, white and blue
  • Up to 400 marching band / choir members singings ALL military medley themes as riders are staged at start
  • Fly over of law enforcement / military air craft at the start
  • Cycling thru military vehicles, fire / police cars and several hundred or MORE motorcycles with American flags mounted on them.
  • Cycling thru several thousand American flags mounted on poles along the routes.
  • Free food, energy drinks and entertainment at every rest stop along several hundred miles of routes
  • Large vendor expo featuring food, military information booths, and of course all sorts of cycling gear

Over 70 committee and media/marketing personnel attended the first kick-off meeting.  The outpouring of support has been second to none, and we anticipate a fun-filled day on October the 26th!  We look forward to seeing you there!  Please tell your friends and family!
