citizens and cyclists from Law Enforcement agencies to join us
along the route. For example, it would be wonderful to
leave CMPD HQ on Thursday morning with a couple of hundred riders
showing their support for our Law Enforcement community. We will
be fully escorted (police officers blocking all traffic) from
the start to Harrisburg. If you ride out with us for those first
15 miles you'll need to arrange for transportation back downtown.
from Law Enforcement agencies are welcome to join us for any or
all of the ride. If you can just join us for a
few miles as we ride through your jurisdiction, that would be
great. If you wish to ride for multiple days (or the whole trip)
Check out the course
routes on the home page for details of where we'll be riding.
This is not an easy ride The are lots of hills on the course
and springtime weather is likely to bring hot or cold, heavy rain
or dry air, headwinds or tailwinds - we've seen it all the last
Even for "hard-core"
cyclists it's pretty early in the year to be riding four consecutive
centuries for a total of FIVE HUNDRED miles.
This ride is not just about covering all those miles, but you
need to be able to maintain at least 15-16 mph while being comfortable
riding in a group. We'll have training rides between now and May
to get you ready.

is required of you to ride with us:
