IS HOW FAR WE WILL RIDE FROM TAMPA TO NASHVILLE TO RAISE MONEY FOR THOSE IN NEED. JOIN OUR MISSION AND PLEDGE A "PENNY PER MILE."
ABOUT RIDE FOR MUSIC
Ride For Music is committed to the music industry, it's community of artists, employees and music education.
From August 16th to October 1st, in partnership with the artist community and our sponsors, we will ride 1,411 miles from Tampa, Florida to Nashville, Tennessee to raise money for unemployed artist road crew members still out of work from the pandemic.
These roadies, audio engineers, tour managers and merchandise staff's careers were completely destroyed by the Covid-19 pandemic. They are still unemployed, 16 months after the onset of the pandemic shutdowns.
RIDE FOR MUSIC will give 100% of the money raised from the cycling tour to directly support these industry workers.
THE LOCAL RIDES ::
Based out of Tampa FL, #RFM will host local and regional rides every month during 2021 to build grassroots support and to train the cycling team for the campaign. (Check our local event listings here to join us).
THE NASHVILLE RIDE ::
We will depart from St. Petersburg, FL on August 16th and make tour stops in Ybor City, Lakeland, Orlando, St. Augustine, Jacksonville, Savannah, Charleston, Columbia, Charlotte, Asheville, Bryson City, Dollywood, Knoxville and finally end in Nashville for a celebratory benefit concert. (Tour stop details will be listed on the "Events & Rides" page).
As major fans of craft beer, we will partner with craft breweries to host our tour stops. These breweries will also serve as gathering spots for the public to ride along on the journey. And of course, we look forward to sharing a cold brew!
We hope you can pledge a "Penny per Mile" ($14.11) on our donations page, ride with us, and or support us at one of the many tour stops we will host on the journey.
