Ride to the Flags began in 2008, accompanying the Wave of Flags 9/11 Memorial at Pepperdine University. Although not officially associated with the collegiate memorial - the ride does end at the memorial for a short service. Ride to the Flags is an all volunteer, charity ride with 100% of the riders' donations going to charity.
This year's ride will be on Sunday, September 11, 2016 - starting from Naval Base Ventura County, Pt. Mugu and finishing at Malibu Bluffs Park, adjacent to Pepperdine University's annual 9/11 memorial at Alumni Park. Check-in from 8:30am to 10am. Event starts at 10 am with a memorial ceremony, followed by the ride and a rally. Registration and additional details at www.ridetotheflags.com.
