Our Team Story
We have been supporting the Longest Day Ride as a team since 2016. We are deeply appreciative of our sponsor's support throughout these years. It has been a real honor to count on you! The last two years of this ride have looked a little different due to COVID, but the Blue Wave Riders team is back!
Marianne will not be able to participate this year as official team Captain and cheerleader this year. But our champion, Craig Madsen, will cheer and lead you in this journey as the best team of the East Coast.
We look forward to surpassing last year's goal and we know we will! Let the fund raising begin in full force!
Here is the event information for this year's ride:
When will it take place? June 18, 2022 from 8:00AM-1:00PM
Where? Anderson Point Park, Raleigh, NC
Address: 20 Anderson Point Park, Raleigh NC 27610
How will the event take place? We will gather as we've always done between 7:30AM-8:00AM to start the ride at 8:00AM the latest. We know it can get hot later in the day and the weather is always unpredictable in the afternoon. Rev. Edmonds will be in a shelter supporting the riders.
The event will be mostly on your own. You can ride anywhere you feel safe. You can also track and accumulate miles from May 15th-June 19th. A tracking mile sheet will be emailed to you once you register.
Who is going to win this year? Everyone who participates is a winner. We are doing this to honor those who endure facing Alzheimer's disease every day. But to be considered for 1st, 2nd or 3rd place you need to turn in your millage tracking sheet to your team captain via email or deliver the tracking form at Anderson Point Park between 9:00AM-12:00PM on June 19th.
Thank you for supporting the Blue Wave Riders and help us stand up to the darkness of Alzheimer’s and make a donation today. Your donation will go to the Alzheimer's Association in support of all those facing the disease.
With deep appreciation,
Craig Madsen (Captain)
Marianne Chanti-Ketterl (Captain in Sabbatical)
