What is the Law Enforcement
Bicycle Ride to DC?

Law Enforcement officers from Mecklenburg County and beyond ride bicycles 500 miles over four days from Charlotte to Washington, DC. From the start in Charlotte and all along the way we are joined by fellow officers and citizens from towns and cities on the route who ride with us to show support for our cause - a ride in honor and memory of those who have died in the line of duty. Though the journey is not easy, each mile is a tribute to those who have made the ultimate sacrifice. At the completion of the ride we attend the Candlelight Vigil at the National Law Enforcement Officers Memorial in Washington, DC.


We appreciate your prayers and support as we finished our tenth ride on May 12 and attended the Candlelight Vigil May 13. Click on the links to the left to see pictures and video - and we can use your support anytime, so please click on the button below and Donate TODAY. Thanks!
