REMSA is a private emergency medical services system serving northern Nevada. REMSA’s state-of-the-art 9-1-1 dispatch communications center is fully accredited, as are all emergency medical transport services of the company. REMSA provides quality patient care with no taxpayer support or other subsidies.

For the second consecutive year, the National EMS (Emergency Medical Services) Memorial Bike Ride, also known as the Muddy Angels, will hold a west coast cycling event that will start in Reno on Monday, Sept. 22 and will conclude in San Francisco on Saturday, Sept. 27. The bike ride, which will feature cyclists from across the county, will hold a pre-race ceremony at REMSA (Regional Emergency Medical Services Authority), located at 450 Edison Way in Reno, at 8 a.m. on Monday, Sept. 22 prior to the racers starting.

The bike ride was created to honor EMS personnel by organizing and implementing long distance cycling events that memorialize and celebrate the lives of those who serve everyday, those who have become sick or injured while performing their duties, and those who have died in the line of duty. The bike ride has been in existence since 2000.

Prior to creating the west coast event, the National EMS Memorial Bike Ride has only gone as far west as Colorado.

Registration for the ride is $75 for a day, or $300 for the entire four days. Those who wish to participate and go on the trip, but not cycle can register as a “wingman” for $15 per day, or $50 for the entire trip.

Rout details include:
Sept. 22 Reno, Nev. to Stateline, Nev.
Sept. 23 Stateline, Nev. to Stateline, Nev. (around Lake Tahoe)
Sept. 24 Stateline, Nev. to Placerville, Calif.
