SPRINGFIELD, Mass. (WWLP) – The popular Ride to Remember, now in its eighth year of honoring fallen heroes, will look very different this year.
According to the official website, the 106-mile bike ride from Springfield to Boston be virtual due to Covid-19 concerns and social distancing guidelines.
Instead, event organizers are asking riders to go to a memorial and ride for a fallen first responder on their own terms.
In addition to keeping the same mission in mind, Ride to Remember is planning a separate event in October with Vanished Valley Brewing to honor fallen Chicopee Police Officer Angela Santiago and retired Officer Sal Persico.
