Due to the impact of Hurricane Ian on the Daytona and Ormond communities (flooding and road conditions) and upon further consultation with the Rossmeyer family, the Volusia County Sheriff's Office, and our event vendors we have made the very difficult decision to cancel the Bruce Rossmeyer Ride for Children event scheduled for Sunday, October 2, 2022. W e are exploring other date options to reschedule this event as soon as possible.
