Come join Florida State University Police Department and the Dori Slosberg Foundation at 10am on April 14 (Sun) for the 5th Annual Matthew Beard Memorial Ride to the Sea at the St. Mark’s Trail head.
The ride is FREE and is intended to allow all levels of cyclists to ride to show their support of victims and survivors of DUI drivers. Riders will have support along the way, including snacks and drinks. The ride follows the St. Marks Bike Trail to the St. Marks River Park in St. Marks, Florida. Here is where the river feeds into the Apalachicola Bay at the Gulf of Mexico — a beautiful area in a little sea oriented town. At the park, riders will be able to make a dedication to a loved one, and sign a pledge to be a designated driver and not drink and drive.
At the ride finish, t-shirts for all finishers (limited supply). The total out and back ride distance is 32 miles. The ride is organized by the Florida State University Police Department and the Dori Slosberg Foundation and is sponsored by The GEICO Philanthropic Company. Email Major Jim Russell for more information. Helmets required – safety first! Please come out to make a statement that cyclists support DUI education and enforcement, to keep all of us safe!
