A few Hoosier cops are hitting the road on two wheels instead of four, in memory of their fallen brothers.
On Monday morning, riders kicked off the annual “Cops Cycling for Survivors Bike Ride,” in Indianapolis.
The event brings together retired and active duty police officers for a 13 day bike ride across Indiana. It raises funds and awareness of the sacrifices made by Hoosier law enforcement officers and their families.
These men and women will visit several police agencies and fallen officer memorials; they also read off the names of officers they have lost throughout the years and they pay their respects to loved ones.
The event started Monday morning at 8:30 in Indianapolis, and they hit the road enroute to their first destination. which was Columbus.
