The Florida to Connecticut Dream Ride Rally is the kick-off event for the annual Dream Ride Experience. In 2012, Michael Bozzuto created the motorcycle ride as a means to raise greater awareness of the Dream Ride Experience along the East Coast.

All motorcyclists are welcomed to register and become a participant on the 2,000+ mile journey that begins at PGA National Resort in Palm Beach Gardens, Florida, and concludes at the Hartford Marriott Farmington in Farmington, Connecticut.  The Rally starts off with a VIP Reception on Friday evening at PGA National Resort.  It is an evening of meeting new friends, connecting with old, appetizing food and live entertainment.  The next morning after a blessing of the bikes and much fanfare the rally departs to begin the journey north.

 Along the route, riders are greeted at the stops along the route by Special Olympic Athletes as well as other individuals in need, members of the community and media.  At each stop, the participants hand out medals and t-shirts to the athletes.  It is quite the celebration. 

This is an extraordinary rally where the participants connect with athletes creating lasting friendships.   For the riders, this event has come to be more than just a motorcycle ride. They are changing lives and, in return, the athletes inspire something in them they didn’t know existed.
