For the fifth time, Charlotte cyclists will spend 2.5 months riding their bikes across the country raising awareness about brain injuries, helmet safety, and bike safety. Stopping at churches, schools, and businesses across the nation, the group, called the B.I.G. Ride, will spread the word about seat belt and helmet safety while at the same time inspiring those affected by head injuries sustained in accidents.

This year, the ride took place from August 26 to November 4 and ended in Ben Barry’s home town of Charlotte.
