PEDALING A TOUGH MESSAGE
Riding from The Statue of Liberty to Alcatraz, Bicyclist Michael Maresco Meets with County Sheriffs
On Sunday May 24, 2009 at 11am in Liberty State Park, NJ, 44 year old Bicyclist Michael Maresco, will begin a 63 day - 4000 mile journey across the continental United States of America. While traversing the country on a modified WalMart Schwinn, Mr. Maresco will meet with Governors and County Sheriffs to discuss their vital roles in preserving citizens’ liberty and a constitutionally correct Rule of Law.
“The sheriff absolutely has the power and responsibility to defend his citizens against all enemies, including those from our own Federal Government,” says seasoned cyclist and long distance walker Michael Maresco. "My hope is that fellow Americans will take notice of this bike ride, with the topics being discussed, and take an honest look at the problems fast overwhelming this country.”
44 year old Hawaii resident, Maresco continues, “The marriage of special interest and government has put America on a slippery slope. I’m making this ride to emphasize, that relief from the current ‘crisis’ will ultimately be based on the efforts put forth by individual citizens interacting positively with their neighbors. ”
“Designed as an outreach campaign, The Ride for Honesty is not a protest or demonstration,” says Nick Ramaglia, Local Logistics Coordinator for the Ride. “In each town Michael passes through he will directly address, in an understated yet memorable way, the condition of our country and the solution to its troubles: namely, the principles of Liberty and The Constitution.”
