A convoy of cyclists and volunteers with the Carolina Brotherhood Ride made two stops in Forsyth County last week to honor fallen first responders.

The mission of the Carolina Brotherhood is to provide emotional and financial support for the families of those who lost their lives in the line of duty from North Carolina and South Carolina.

While the annual ride across the Carolinas has been going on since 2012, this year is the first time they’ve made a stop in Forsyth County.

The cyclists arrived in Winston-Salem around 11 a.m. on Thursday, July 12. While gathering at the Forsyth County EMS Center on East Fifth Street, volunteers honored the life of Forsyth County Sheriffs Deputy John Isenhour, who died in 2016 after he was hit by a vehicle while directing traffic at an event at Tanglewood Park.

After taking a photo with a giant American flag, the group of more than a dozen cyclists made their way to Tanglewood, where they paused for a moment to honor Isenhour once again.

Before wrapping up the 2018 ride in Pineville, the Carolina Brotherhood Ride made stops in Sherrills Ford, Alexis, Shelby and Greenville. In total, the cyclists traveled nearly 600 miles over six days.
