On June 9, 2012, it was cold and windy, and raining hard with plenty of thunder and lightning. The Dying to Ride Memorial run was held anyway. Twelve brave riders weathered the storm in memory of the fallen riders. The memorial was a wet one. The plaque was mounted with a wet screwdriver into a wet wooden post set in the wet grounds of the Robin Hood Pub, where Rob Mills' collision took place in which Dying to Ride was bourn out of.

Dying to  Ride now has a facebook presence with almost 3,000 and non facebook membership database, The Face Book page is growing fast in membership, and the non Facebook datatbase has outgrown the facebook database by thirty times in the second year of DTR.  We thank those who joined Dying to Ride.

The ride took off for Leeds after a moment of silence and rode about 60 miles before the rain stopped and the sun peeked through the clouds. By the time we reached Leeds, it was nice, but a little on the cool side.

A large crowd at Squires were waiting for the band Night Train. The memorial ceremony was held at 7:08 p.m GMT  immediately followed by the music of Night Train. The house was packed and we had a great night of great music and camping.

Dying to Ride thanks those twelve who braved that cold rainy day to honour those riders who have fallen. We thank the crowd who came to see Night Train.  The night was a huge success. 

Dying to Ride thanks all who sponsored this ride. Your names were read right before the band started its second set. We thank Squires Cafe for the place to hold this event.

We look forward to the second Saturday of next June. We are considering expanding the camping and music to three nights next year. We are considering adding two more bands next year and plenty of vendors.
