On Friday, August 23rd through Wednesday, August 27th the Southern New England Brotherhood Ride will be departing on a 6-day 500-mile bicycle ride through over 50 communities in Massachusetts, Rhode Island, and Connecticut to honor 20 first responders who paid the ultimate sacrifice to the communities in which they served and protected.

This year’s ride will begin in Hyannis, Massachusetts and will travel through several Cape Cod communities before heading north through Marshfield up to Weymouth, Everett, Boston and out to Worcester. From Worcester, they will continue through Western MA and down into Rhode Island and Connecticut before returning back into RI and ending on the 6th day in Newport, RI. They will travel through more than 50 different communities over the course of the 6 days and the ride will encompass over 15,000 feet of elevation.

The Brotherhood Ride takes place 1 year after the death of a first responder in MA, RI or CT to show the communities where they served, their department and their family that their acts of bravery will never be forgotten.

SNEBHR is a nonprofit organization established in 2018 as a chapter of the Brotherhood Ride of Florida. They are a team of active and retired firefighters, law enforcement officers and emergency medical technicians who ride bicycles to honor the memories of, fallen first responders who suffered a line of duty death from the previous year. The SNEBR is entirely made up of volunteers. No one collects a paycheck or compensation for their time. Everyone who participates does so on either their own personal time or vacation time. We are a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization and all donations are tax-deductible. Other than the cost of the ride itself, all of the proceeds and monies raised, from fundraising and donations will go directly back to the families of the fallen.

It is not a race, it is not a competition, we do not ride for us, we ride to remember our fallen
heroes, our brothers and sisters, we ride in their memory and to let their families know that we
truly will “never forget” they paid the ultimate sacrifice.

“So stand down my brother, you have completed your shift. Let our legs carry your memory and remind all who will listen that you gave your life to save a total stranger,” said Jeff Morse Founder Brotherhood Ride Florida

Here are the honorees who we are riding in honor of this year.
