More than just a ride!

Honor – Dignity – Respect

You will find the Morning Program bringing home the message that We Will Never Forget.

Riding or not … you won’t want to miss these emotional tributes to those who serve, have served, paid the ultimate sacrifice and the families that support them.

Honoring the Ultimate Sacrifice

The Patriot Ride will produce a ceremony that recognizes and remembers the sacrifice that all Gold Star and End of Watch family members make when a father, mother, brother, sister, son, daughter, or other loved one dies in service of our country and communities.

Missing Man Table

The Missing Man Table, also known as the Fallen Comrade Table, is a place of honor, set up in military dining facilities of the U.S. armed forces and during occasions such as service branch birthday balls, in memory of fallen, missing, or imprisoned military service-members.  The Patriot Ride will be displaying the Missing Man Table to honor these service-members.

Honor Wall

The Honor Wall is raised each year during the Patriot Ride and offers all who view it the names of over 250 Minnesotans’ (Military and Law Enforcement) who have passed since 2001.  While each name is significant on its own, the names en masse illustrate the significant involvement and sacrifice of our community and the loved ones of those no longer with us.


Please take a moment to view the wall while at the event.  We predict it will have a profound impact on you.

Brian Zepp

The best Master of Ceremonies an event can have!

Radio Personality Brian Zepp has been our MC for a number of years (rain or shine). He himself is a veteran and a true supporter of the cause.  Brian brings a perspective and sense of humor that enhances both the morning and afternoon programs.

Zepp is more than just the MC

That’s right … he doesn’t just speak, he rides!
