The procession, which is not open to the public, will take place in two sections. Fire departments and motorcyclists may elect to participate in either section or both. Fire apparatus and firefighter motorcyclists will be escorted by law enforcement officials from a designated location South of Denver(TBD) to the staging area in Colorado Springs on N. Nevada. Updates for this section of the Ride will be posted on the Rocky Mountain Chapter Wind and Fire motorcycle club website.
The Second Section of the procession is sponsored by the Colorado Springs Professional Fire Fighters - IAFF Local 5 and the IAFF. It will depart from the staging area in Colorado Springs and arrive under police escort at Memorial Park signifying the commencement of the 30th annual IAFF Fallen Fire Fighter Memorial Observance.
