What is the Mayors' Ride?
Starting from big cities in all four corners of the US, with the blessings of the Mayors in each of these municipalities, relay teams of National Bicycle Greenway (NBG) cyclists, as the move across America, will collect support from the leaders of other large population centers. As these bicycle adventurers pass through supporting NBG Day cities they will receive proclamations in ceremonies ranging from fifteen minute certificate presentations to media extravaganzas that have included police escorts, newspaper, TV and radio interviews and hordes of photographers.
