The Texas Brotherhood Ride continues the tradition of Honor, Dedication and Pride that is inspired by The Brotherhood Ride based in Naples, FL.
Since 2008, we have honored the memory and sacrifice of over 500 Emergency First Responders which includes; firefighters, law enforcement officers and emergency medical personnel. Our team has traveled on bicycles over 7,700 miles, through sixteen states, have been hosted by over forty Elks Lodges nationwide and assisted by countless emergency first responders who have shown the true meaning of Brotherhood.
The Texas Brotherhood Ride’s mission is to honor First Responders who have made the ultimate sacrifice serving their community. By riding bicycles, our goal is to bring awareness to these tragedies and letting their families, friends and co-workers know that Texas Never Forgets.
