On June 4, Hill Air Force Base will host its 6th annual See Me, Save Me safety ride. The event is designed to motivate vehicle operators to take that extra moment to look specifically for motorcycles while sharing the road with their two-wheeled counterparts. 

We invite all riders who are interested in doing their part to help save fellow riders lives to join us in what is becoming a huge annual event, safety officials said. The more riders we have participating, the bigger the impact we can make and we will have the ability to enhance awareness of all who share the road. 

City officials from surrounding communities are scheduled to join riders for the event.

 Local police from the surrounding cities will be staged at key intersections blocking traffic, allowing riders to complete the entire ride safely and without any delays. Every intersection along the entire ride route will be blocked, allowing uninterrupted travel to maintain the integrity of the campaign giving us complete control of the road. 

The first part of our ride will begin on base with a 75th Security Forces escort, along with Utah Highway Patrol and local community police riders. 

Motorcycle riders with access to the base will begin staging at 10:30 a.m. at the Motorcycle Safety Training Range (located on the east side of the South Gate). The ride will begin at 11 a.m. 

Riders who do not have access to the base, but are interested in participating in this awareness campaign, can meet at the Hill AFB Aerospace Museum on 5600 South in Roy near the Hill AFB Roy gate (east of Interstate 15, exit 338). Off-base riders should be staged and ready by 10:45 a.m. to join the main body when they exit the Roy Gate.

The route will include Roy, West Haven, Ogden, South Ogden, Uintah, South Weber, Layton, Clearfield and Sunset.
