MURRAY – A “Ride for the Blue” ride is planned for Sunday in Orleans County with a caravan of vehicles going on a 52-mile trek to show their support for law enforcement.

Participants will begin gathering at 11 a.m. on private property owned by David Paul at 3823 County Line Rd. in Murray.

The ride begins at noon. When people return at about 1 p.m., there will be speakers including Andrew Giuliani, a political commentator who was a Republican candidate for governor; and two Republican Congressional candidates – Mario Fratto in the 24th District and La’Ron Singletary in 25th. Both of those districts include parts of Orleans County.

The ride route includes turning right out of the driveway on County Line Road and heading southbound to Route 31; then turn right and head through Holley and Albion until Route 63 in Medina; then head north to Route 104 in Ridgeway; then turn east on Route 104 through Gaines and Murray to County Line Road; then turn right and head back to 3823 County Line Rd.

The ride order includes the Orleans County Sheriff’s Office, Holley Fire Department, all motorcycles, remaining fire trucks, vintage cars and trucks, “everybody else,” and all big trucks and dump trucks.

There will be food vendors on site from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m.
