85-mile unity ride honoring our Fallen Heroes.
We will ride two-by-two as we make our way to all 7 Dallas Police Department's substations and DART Headquarters with a Dallas Police escort. The Dallas Police Department has lost 84 officers in its history as a department, each mile ridden will be in remembrance of a fallen Dallas Police Officer who made the ultimate sacrifice serving the Citizens of Dallas. The extra mile is for DART Officer Brent Thompson who was standing with Dallas PD on 7/7/2016. Proceeds from the ride will go to HALO fund.
At the end of the ride, your map will show that you went from north Dallas to south Dallas, from west Dallas to east Dallas, and never once had to stop for a red light or stop sign thanks to the Dallas Police Department Motorcycle Unit. This ride is open to the public !
Registration is $40.00 until January 31st. February 1- March 31st the registration is $50.00. April 1-May 31st the registration is $60.00
REST STOPS and SAG WAGON:
We will have snacks and water at each of our rest stops and lunch will be served during the ride. Medical aid will be provided along the route and we will have sag wagons for those who may need to sit out a segment. Rest stops will be approximately 12-16 miles apart so if you need to sit a section out you will not miss out on much mileage. BBQ and refreshments will be available after the ride and are included in the registration. The average pace will be 15-16mph. We will try our best to keep every cyclist in the saddle but there may come a point where we move a cyclist into the sag wagon during a segment. If you can not ride the entire route you are more than welcome to sit out a segment- we only ride 12-16 miles between stops.
There will not be any refunds issued if the ride is canceled because of weather. We will ride in the rain just as long as it is not a torrential downpour with lightning-we will make every attempt to get the ride in! Texas weather changes by the minute, we will have our trailer with us during the entire ride so feel free to put your riding gear inside the trailer.
We will leave from the Dallas Police Association at 0700 to get a head start from the Texas heat. The Motorcycle Unit will have a mandatory safety briefing that everyone must attend before we head out. For the safety of the entire group, if you miss the meeting then you will not be able to ride- DO NOT be late.
AFTER THE RIDE EVENTS:
Stay after the ride for BBQ and refreshments at the Dallas Police Association. After we carb back up we will draw the winners for our Vacation getaway raffle ! There are a lot of good prizes and tickets are only $20.00 per ticket.
