The MC-1 Run, for Officer John Adsit.

Are any other inmates joining in? If so, please get in touch, so that we may ride together. I'd be happy to intro any ADV'ers to Pete Boyles, Tom Tancredo and/or former Columbime HS Principal Frank DeAngelis, if you'd like. I plan on arriving at Columbine around 7:30AM.... these rides tend to draw a lot of riders, and it's good for the soul.

On December 3, 2014, Denver Poliice Officer John Adsit was at work. During his daily duties, he was assigned to the bike patrol unit to assist with escorting hundreds of students marching on Colfax Avenue for a protest. During this time, a driver suffering from a medical condition struck John and dragged him under the vehicle.
John suffered numerous injuries, which include the loss of his spleen, broken ribs, a broken femur and having his left arm crushed. He has undergone twelve surgeries so far and just recently, on February 18, 2015, had been cleared to go home to his family.
To help John and his family with their burden and expenses and additional surgeries, we would like to support him with the 2015 MC-1 Honor Run. Please join the metropolitan community with your support by joining us on May 3, 2015 for this year's MC-1 Honor Run.

Post-script.

It was a decent ride. Got rained-on a little coming home from Bandimere, but not enough to wish I'd broken-out the rainsuit.

I got to meet Officer Adsit, and spoke with him twice briefly. I asked if there has been any support from North High School, he said that "a couple of parents have stepped-up", but that's been it. He has roughly another 6 months of surgeries and therapy before he can return to work for the Denver Police. He seems a nice guy, and showed no bitterness. Impressive.

Numerous motorcycle officers were there from all over the front range - from as far away as Fountain, Morrison and Boulder. There were perhaps half-again as many copsickles there today than last year, but fewer civilians. Still an impressive crowd of friendly riders of all stripes.... even a Ural side-car rig came along. All in all, a very pleasant morning ride.

Good support, I will try and make the next one.

I volunteer at my church every first sunday of the month so wasn't able to make this one.

Thanks, Sir Hanzo. The next big ride is Emily's Parade, in honor of Bailey High School student Emily Keyes, slain during a classroom invasion 10 years ago now. I'm uncertain of the ride's date at this time. It will also begin at Columbine High School, and end up in Bailey. I'd encourage ADV'ers to consider riding..... 'tis good for the soul. I'll post-up as I hear more.

Emily's dad, John Michael Keyes was there this morning, and we had a good talk before the ride. I like the guy, and he's worth knowing. Tancredo was there as well, but keeps himself on the back burner. I lost track of him, but would have loved to playfully harass him a bit.
