SC EMS Memorial Bike Ride
May 20-23, 2021

“For those who can no longer ride”

The South Carolina EMS Memorial Bike Ride is a charitable organization, which honors EMS providers who have lost their lives while providing care to others or after a significant career in EMS. Our ride began in 2010 when we honored eight EMS providers which included the three lost in the September 2009 Omniflight crash that year.

We ride to honor EMS professionals and bring awareness to the dangers that EMS faces every day in serving the citizens of South Carolina.

For 2021 - Pre-ride dinner starts Thursday May 20, First day of the bike (Metric Century) ride is May 21, second day (Century) of the bike ride May 22 and third day is May 23 and the date of the Memorial.
