Most two-wheeled divisions are thrilled to be asked and take part in such rides. It gives them exposure, AND…it gives the ride credibility and a certain level of assurance. Plus, it’s more people on bikes for your ride.
The print and TV media especially like capturing officers on bikes. Again, it works both ways: both get exposure.
Consider calling the cops. I think you’ll be surprised when they say “yes.”
It should go without saying, but I’ll say it anyway…
This is the time to contact the media (TV and newspapers, local and national) to bring attention to your ride. Type in the station into your search engine and get to the station’s web site. Then go to “contact us.” Be sure to give them the following:
World-wide, one day, one time
Date, time, location of your ride
The R of S web site to cross reference your ride
Purpose of the ride
Your name and contact information
They may or may not get in touch. You never know. But at least you’ll be prepared.
Less than a week to go!
