2nd Annual Riders For Striders Charity Ride May 2015 Indiana POLL

Take the poll above! Using Tapatalk? Just leave a comment with your date choice.


I am currently in the planning stages for the 2nd annual Riders for Striders Charity Ride held in South Indianapolis May 2015. The mission of this ride is to provide Strider bikes to the kids of Peyton Manning Children's Hospital. Last year we raised enough money to purchase over 40 Strider bikes for the kids. I would like to see us get over 60 Striders this year!

This year we are going to improve the ride. We are going to focus mainly on an ADV ride. Last years ride was a compromise in hopes of having a large crowd and not having to have two routes. This year we are going to find as much gravel and dirt as possible. And we are going to have a road ride. 2 routes this year. You choose, ADV or Street ride. It will NOT be a parade ride, it will be in groups of like minded riders riding at that group leaders pace. We will provide GPX tracks and group leaders, if you need them.

We are also going to move the start and finish location to about 15 miles south of Indianapolis, the Trafalgar/Bargersville area (IN HWY 135 & IN HWY 144 intersection area). This saves time by having the start and finish closer to the good riding.

I need your help though! I am trying to set a ride date. Either Saturday May 16, or Saturday May 9. Saturday May 16 is also the Hanging Rock dual sport ride in Ohio. I dont know how many Hoosiers attend the ohio ride, but I don't want to have you to choose one ride over another. Saturday May 9 is Mother's Day weekend. Mothers Day is Sunday May 10. Would Saturday May 9 work ok? Please take the poll and help me decide and firm up a ride date!

Saturday May 16 (Hanging Rock DS ride in Ohio weekend) or Saturday May 9 (Mother's Day is May 10)?

Mother's Day being May 10, doesn't make a ride May 9 a problem?

Was able to get my vote in from a real computer today. My mother will just have to deal with me not being able to call her the day before mothers day to wish her a happy mothers day.

2nd Annual Riders For Striders Charity Ride May 2015 Indiana POLL

Finalizing it today. Most likely be May 16. Mother's Day weekend (May9-10)affects 100% of people, out of state rides (May 16)affect maybe 10% at best.

Have a meeting with Peyton Manning Children's Hospital today about setting up a Foundation for the ride. This just allows us all the benefits of a non profit organization without all the cost. The hospital essentially sponsors the ride as a non profit. Tax deductions for donations, website, etc.

Also working on sponsorship, Strider give away to a ride participant, and finalizing new and improved start/end location.
