The Southern New England Brotherhood Ride is a bicycle club made up of firefighters, law enforcement officers, and emergency medical personnel, both active and retired. Our mission is to honor first responders who have died in the line of duty in Connecticut, Massachusetts, and Rhode Island. As we travel through each affected community we will provide their families with emotional and financial support. We will also raise awareness of the the sacrifices made by the first responders while serving and protecting their communities throughout Southern New England.
Our team is made up of two groups, the riders and the support crew. The riders need to have a road bike or a tri bike and will pedal anywhere between 50-100 miles a day. The riders will ride through any type of weather to complete our mission of honoring our fallen brothers and sisters. The support crew may not be riding but they are what keeps the wheels rolling, without them the riders would not be able to endure the long days. The support crew keeps the riders safe and well nourished. The support crew works hard behind the scenes and are the backbone of our organization.
The Southern New England Brotherhood Ride is a non profit organization. Other than the cost of conducting the ride, all proceeds will go directly to the designated beneficiaries. No member of our organization collects a pay check or is reimbursed for their time. Everyone involved donates their personal and/or vacation time and time away from their families in order to complete our mission set forth to HONOR our fallen with DEDICATION and PRIDE to assure that we will NEVER FORGET their sacrifice.
