The Long Reach Long Riders announce a 2020 Kazoo Relay Ride across America

The Long Reach Long Riders are adapting this years’ ride to meet the challenging conditions necessitated by COVID-19. Toward that end the LRLR have postponed their full group ride until 2021 and are replacing it with a Relay Ride in which small groups ride for two or three days carrying a kazoo shaped baton (what else?!). The oversized kazoo-baton will be passed from one group to the next at dedicated locations across the country.

The ride, which will begin at Half Moon Bay, California and end in Lubec, Maine, has been dubbed “Just Breathe” A Celebration of the Life of Cris “Brooklyn” Dopher. Cris, a founding member of the LRLR, passed away last year.

Ride organiser Greg Williams noted: “We feel it’s only fitting to honour Cris by making this year’s ride a celebration of his remarkable life and by adopting his mantra as he dealt with the many challenges he faced in his life – Just Breathe.”

Ride dates are tentatively set for mid-late June. Please visit http://lrlr.org/ for details on joining the ride and making a donation.
