This year’s Brotherood Ride is dedicated to two Houston (TX) firefighters, Captain Harlow and Firefighter Hobbs, who responded to an early morning house fire on April 12, 2009 Easter morning. Upon arrival they were assigned to conduct a primary search for a reported possible victim. Captain Harlow and Firefighter Hobbs died while performing the search. These firefighters made the ultimate sacrifice to protect the citizens of Houston, Texas. The Brotherhood Ride will honor them by riding bicycles from Tallahassee, Florida to Houston, Texas. The ride will leave Tallahassee on April 1, 2010. Ten days later, they will arrive in Houston after covering more than 850 miles on bicycles.
