National Memorial Ride

Ride to remember those who sacrificed


The National Memorial Ride is an event that brings together motorcycle enthusiasts and supporters to remember and commemorate Canada’s Fallen Veterans. Held annually on the first Sunday in June, riders join a motorcycle procession through Ottawa to the National Military Cemetery at Beechwood, where they participate in a Service of Remembrance and wreath laying ceremony to commemorate Canada’s Fallen military servicemen and women. This event offers a unique opportunity for riders to share their pride in Canada’s Veterans and honour those who served their country.

The 2019 National Memorial Ride is held on Sunday, June 2 in Ottawa.
