Heartache and pain come from all directions (although folks are quick to say, "sorry for your loss") it never ends!!!
During last year's ride I was told by both the Campus Police and volunteers who are County employees that I *must *obtain a Special Event Permit. While I have aggressively worked for six months to get the elusive permit I have yet to encounter anyone who knows the process!!! Like a rubber ball, I have been bounced and bounced but nothing else!!!!
I have decided to declare *riders' civil disobedience.* I will not let
this the 5th anniversary of the *death* of my baby go unceremoniously.
Yes, there will be a *"Ride For Natasha,"* and no, there will not be any formal registrations...show up, keep coming, tell everyone you know to come ready to ride!!!
Let's send a message that "organized bicycle riding" will come to PG County. Let's send a message that not just this ride but many other rides will come to PG County!!!
We will say that bicyclists are people and they matter!!! Share the roads, share the resources!!!
see attached fliers.
