Just as Nicky Hayden fans have been doing annually for the last five years, June 9, 2023, will mark the day we once again gather to celebrate the legacy of “The Kentucky Kid” with a memorial bicycle ride that fans across the globe can join. This is truly an international event so in addition to the 69-mile ride in Southern California, we’re encouraging everyone to map out a route for either an outdoor ride or one on your indoor trainer wherever you call home. If you don’t have a bike to ride, how about walking 6.9 miles!
No matter where you are, with every pedal stroke you’ll be joining an international community spinning on two-wheels in honor of the 2006 MotoGP World Champion. In addition to the ride, the SoCal Ride Location is new! Join us at Oakley HQ, in Lake Forest, CA for a family-friendly environment where cyclists and friends can enjoy the day with food trucks and games.
Registration for the ride will open now, and as always, the 69 Miles For Nicky Ride is free to participate in! Further route details will be announced soon, but remember, we’re just a few days out from throwing a leg over our bikes so be sure to save the date and register as soon as possible. In addition to the ride, you can preorder some official Nicky Hayden 69 cycling gear. For more information, stay updated by checking out our Instagram or back here.
