Aarons Freedom Ride to Honor 9/11/ProGold Tour

Freedom Ride Finish


WOW! As I try and reflect back on this journey, I think of the 343 firefighters that have lost their lives, plus the countless civilians and military personnel over the years as well. It is an honor for ProGold to be part of this and many other events such as the Wounded Warrior rides, Veteran’s Day ride, and the countless other events and rides with ProGold Extreme and ProLink. The Freedom Ride covered over 1200 miles in 15 Days on two wheels for one cause with NO broken chains or creaks thanks to the ProGold Extreme Lube. What a great day it was when the Aarons Freedom Ride team got to meet up with the 343 Ride of 36 Firefighters out of NY for 343 miles to PA, Washington, DC and NY. It was an awesome meeting of the two groups. Yes, ProGold stepped up to the plate and took care of each of the 343 riders’ needs with ProLink.

Each and every night, the Freedom Ride support crew was there for us…making sure we were eating well, getting our clothes washed, giving massages, washing and tuning up our bikes, making arrangements for the next day, and countless other support (i.e. supplying me with choc milk). Thanks goes out to the incredible support from these folks as well.

Every morning as we got ready to depart on sparkling bikes washed with ProGold Bike Wash, it was an honor to put on the Aarons Freedom Ride kit and get in front of the camera and ride for a greater purpose. Thank you, Aarons! Please remember those that are no longer with us either by bike accident, by the events of 9-11, or the wars around the globe as we ride as one nation to honor those that have fallen.
