a. The 2013 Colorado leg of the National Emergency Medical Services Memorial Bicycle Ride will be a unique part of a larger network of bicycle rides across the U.S. to honor “in the line of duty” deaths in the Emergency Medical Services field. The mission of National EMS Memorial Bike Ride, Inc. is to “honor Emergency Medical Services personnel by organizing and implementing long distance cycling events that memorialize and celebrate the lives of those who serve everyday, those who have become sick or injured while performing their duties, and those who have died in the line of duty.”
b. The Colorado portion will take place over three days, and will span virtually all of the front-range. Riders will be given the opportunity to complete approximately 180 miles of Colorado’s beautiful road cycling while sharing the experience with a group of like minded professionals to remember the fallen, sick and injured in the EMS profession.
