A 17+ year-veteran with the Greenwich Police Dept., Roger Petrone was diagnosed with ALS in 2007. His fellow officers and community leaders are
on a quest to make the town synonymous with an effective treatment for ALS. Care to join them? Show your support by coming to welcome us home!
Riding at their own pace after an early morning departure out of New Haven, the first riders are expected to arrive in North Greenwich at around
11:00am on Sunday, July 21st.
Coming into town on Round Hill Road, early riders will await the group with a few hours of hill repeats up and down John Street.
With an average grade of 8%, John Street is a steep and winding ¾ mile climb with grades of up to 13% in some places. We hate ALS, and we take
the opportunity on John Street to prove it. It's here that the fury of angry cyclists fueled by the fact that there is still no effective treatment
for ALS comes to a climax.
Cyclists have been known to climb John Street as many as 15 times as spectators cheer them on, and donate to their heroic efforts. (For a rider: 15
times up John Street, on a 75 mile hilly ride from New Haven, is a distance and difficulty rating greater than even the toughest day on the Tour
At 2 pm we leave the pain of the John Street for the pomp of downtown Greenwich, our Victory Ride down Greenwich Ave and Finish Line celebration at
Roger Sherman Baldwin Park.
