Get ready for the Reid Ride! The Reid Ride began in 2009 with the idea of riding across Wayne County. Each registration would provide a pair of shoes for a local child in need. In the event's first year, 280 riders came out to support ReidRide and Shoes for Kids! Since 2009, the community has rallied behind the event in many different ways. With your help, we have had $400,000 in corporate partnerships, nearly 7,000 riders, and 122,478 miles ridden, raising $318,917! Join us in 2022 to make it one of our biggest years yet!
