Finish the Ride

It’s not just a ride, it’s a movement for the safety of all on the streets of Los Angeles.

Finish The Ride started after bicyclist Damian Kevitt was dragged nearly a quarter mile under a car. It was a gross hit and run crime which is a common occurrence in Southern California. Having barely survived, he vowed to get back on a bicycle and FINISH THE RIDE — not just for himself but to help make the streets of Southern California safe for ALL.

Now the event is not just about Damian’s triumph over tragedy but about finishing for the nearly 6,000 other people in LA County who have been severly injured in hit and run crimes. By just participating, you are helping Finish The Ride raise awareness and handle the epidemic of hit and run crimes, thereby making the streets safer for you, me and everyone else.
