Last weekend, paramedics Zane Grimm, Nico Soler and Brian Shaw of Slippery Rock Volunteer Fire Company and Rescue Team embarked on a multi-city, seven-day bikeathon honoring Emergency Medical Service personnel. The National EMS Memorial Bike Ride, comprised of different routes along the East Coast, had its starting point in Boston and concluded yesterday in Washington, D.C.

The annual event, which spanned approximately 489 miles, is part of five long-distance memorial bike rides nationwide.

Soler is a prehospital business development specialist with the Allegheny Health Network and a paramedic with Butler Memorial Hospital. Shaw also is president of the National EMS Memorial Bike Ride. Both Soler and Shaw are returnees, having navigated the journey in previous years.
