CENTRAL NEW YORK -- Many of us are familiar with the annual Ride for Missing Children in the Mohawk Valley each year, and the Syracuse Ride for Missing Children involves the same effort to raise awareness for missing and exploited children.
This year marks the second year for this event, which covers a route of a little more than 96 miles through two counties.
Cyclists will leave the Sports Centre on Jones Road and head north to Oswego County. Riders will make three stops this morning at local schools to be greeted by students and make their way back to Syracuse.
The group will stop at the McMahon Ryan Child Advocacy Center around noon before an afternoon ride which concludes back at the Sports Centre.
If you're traveling through either Onondaga and or Oswego counties, today you're advised to be on the lookout for these riders and exercise some patience.
This ride will get started at the Sports Centre and make its way to Oswego County, where riders will stop at Emerson Dillon Middle School in Phoenix. After about eight stops, it's expected riders will finish at the Sports Centre around 5:30 p.m.
