The third annual See Me Save Me campaign is being hosted by Hill Air Force Base. The motorcycle ride is scheduled for June 13. It is designed to motivate vehicle operators to take that extra moment to look specifically for motorcycles while driving.
All riders who are interested in doing their part to help save fellow riders lives are invited to participate. The more riders participating, the bigger the impact that can made. Allan Woods, installation motorcycle safety officer said, "We will have the ability to enhance awareness of all who share the road."
During previous rides, with the help of motor police escort riders, along with local police staged at key intersections, the riders were able to complete the entire ride without any delays. Every intersection along the entire ride route was blocked, allowing uninterrupted travel to maintain the integrity of the campaign giving the group complete control of the road.
With local newspaper and live media coverage the group was able to reach out and touch the entire state of Utah with the awareness message.
The first part of the ride will begin on base with a 75th Security Forces escort along with Utah Highway Patrol and local community police riders. Staging will begin at 10:30 a.m. for all Hill AFB riders who are interested in joining the campaign. The group will meet at the motorcycle training range east of the South Gate Visitor Center. The ride will begin at 11 a.m.
All riders who do not have access to the base and who are interested in participating in this awareness campaign may meet at the Hill AFB Aerospace Museum on 5600 South Roy near the Hill AFB Roy gate (East of I-15, off base). These riders will need to be staged by 10:45 a.m.
The route will include Roy, West Haven, Ogden, South Ogden, Uintah, South Weber, Layton, Clearfield and Sunset.
Ride together and show support for this important ride for life.
"The lives we save may be our own," said Woods.
