In 1995, a group of 7 men rode their bicycles from Utica, New York to Washington, D.C.

They arrived on the Capitol steps on May 25th, National Missing Children’s Day. Two years later, inspired by that first ride, a group of 43 riders rode their bicycles 100 miles from Albany, NY to Utica, NY to bring awareness for the plight of missing children and to bring a message of safety to the people they met along the way.

The bicycles are a tribute to Sara Anne Wood, who was walking her bike when she was abducted, and they are the vehicles we use to make our journey and carry our message along. They provide a visible means to spread our message about the plight of missing and exploited children, and the importance of child safety education.

What started as a small group of bicyclists that hoped to raise awareness for the plight of one missing child has grown into the biggest annual fundraiser for The National Center For Missing & Exploited Children.

This year I will be riding from Utica to Washington DC to honor those children still missing or recovered deceased & celebrate the children who have been successfully recovered including my son.
