This event is hosted by the Reid Health Foundation.

“This is my first year with the Foundation, and I’m really looking forward to ReidRide! I’m already so impressed with how many people play a role in making sure the ride is safe and fun for all levels of ability,” said Angela Cline, Reid Foundation Director.

Participants will be able to choose one of three paths using Richmond and Wayne County roads as well as the Cardinal Greenway – a 30-mile extended route, a 15-mile course, or a family friendly 8-mile ride. Route maps can be found at

A special addition will be available at this year’s event.

“Attendees can purchase ‘I Survived Industries Hill’ T-shirts for $25 the day of the event. We think these will be especially appreciated by riders who know how challenging that stretch of the course can be,” Cline said.

Dozens of area EMS professionals and first responders will be positioned along the route, helping to make sure everything is as safe as possible.

“We appreciate the fire departments, EMS, and police departments joining in the effort to ensure all goes well for riders. It’s a full-team effort, and we couldn’t do it without their partnership,” Cline said.

For 15 years, ReidRide has provided funding for the Shoes for Kids initiative in partnership with local agencies such as Communities in Schools, The Common Good of Preble County, and several school systems. Every dollar raised helps to buy shoes for local children, with more than 20,000 pairs given out so far to children across the multi-county region served by Reid Health.

Since 2009, nearly 7,000 participants have biked more than 122,478 miles. Thanks to the community’s help, ReidRide has raised more than $400,000 in corporate partnerships and $318,917 in registrations and donations.
