Welcome To The First Annual Military City Miles & Memories Bike Ride. 

The Military City Miles & Memories Bike Ride takes place in San Antonio and is a charity memorial that honors fallen service members while raising money for Memories of Honor. Participants can choose from various distances to accommodate all levels of cyclists. This bike ride is a great way to show our appreciation and support for Gold Star Families, who have made the ultimate sacrifice. We hope you will join us in this special tribute to those who have made the ultimate sacrifice for our freedom. This ride is produced in partnership with Team Taco.

WHAT YOU GET

 

Commemorative T-shirt

Commemorative Challenge Coin

WHAT IS A CHALLENGE COIN? A challenge coin is a small coin or medallion bearing an organization's insignia or emblem and carried by the organization's members.

WHY CHALLENGE COINS? Challenge coins have a special way of instilling pride in their recipients. Unlike finisher medals, challenge coins are steep in military tradition. Being given a challenge coin represents comrade or unity and proves membership of a specific group, as well as honoring the actions of those who receive them. There is some debate regarding the history of where challenge coins first came into existence. But some historians believe the tradition began in an infantry-run bar in Vietnam, where patrons were required to present enemy bullets or their challenge coin upon entrance.

This coin signifies your commitment to honoring the service, sacrifice, and life of our fallen heroes and their families. You become part of our family when you earn this coin by participating and completing this event. We can't wait to present it to you. 

 

Commemorative Event Bib

 

Fallen Hero Memorial Bib

Each bib contains the name of a fallen hero from our national database. We will also have blank bibs if you want to write your own.
