Who We Are & Why We Ride

The SC EMS Memorial Bike Ride honors Emergency Medical Services personnel we have lost the previous year. We organize and cycle an annual, long distance ride to memorialize and celebrate those who have died in the line of duty (LODD), after working a career in EMS or who were currently serving our communities.

We are a non-profit organization operating solely with volunteers who have a passion for our mission. Our ride began in 2010, when we honored 8 EMS providers, 3 of those lost in the September 2009 Omniflight’s Carolina Life Care helicopter crash in our state.  Our ride consists of EMS providers, those who work with EMS in some way, and friends & family of those we have lost. Many in our group save money for months and use vacation time to participate each year.  We were the first organized state EMS cycling organization to do a multiple day ride to memorialize our fallen, and other states have participated, in the beginning years, to mirror our ride for their states.

During our 3 day ride, we have EMS county services, city & county police, state highway patrol and fire departments, escort us through their various counties. Along the route, we help those EMS county services we pass through and do a small memorial service for their fallen crew member. We have several rest stops during our 3 days, and at each rest stop, 2-3 EMS honorees are dedicated. One mile after is ridden in silence for those honorees named at that rest stop. Each member of our team wears two dog tags with an honoree’s name. At the end of the ride, we conduct a memorial service at our state EMS Memorial in which we call out the honoree’s name.  The family is invited up to place their loved one’s brick into the memorial and we then present them with that dog tag and a shadow box with a shirt that has their loved one’s name, and a proclamation from our Governor.
