Cops Cycling for Survivors bicycle ride to begin Monday
Monday, July 11, 2016, will mark the start of the 15th annual Cops Cycling for Survivors bicycle ride around Indiana. A departure ceremony will be held at 8:30 a.m. EDT in front of the Indiana State Museum (650 W. Washington St) in downtown Indianapolis. The cyclists will depart shortly after key note comments by survivors Carolyn Dudley and Jennifer Martin-Luskey. 2016’s ride celebrates 15 years of Gary Dudley’s vision of a ride to support law enforcement survivors and for the first time in 30 years, Indiana lost no officers to line of duty death in 2015. 2016 also honors ten years since Lt. Gary Dudley, Indiana State Police, and Deputy Chief Gary Martin, Lake County Sheriff’s Dept., were killed participating in the ride on August 22, 2006. The general route of the ride will head towards our area including: Day 4, Thursday, July 14, 2016 – Angola to Mishawaka, Day 5, Friday, July 15, 2016 – Mishawaka to Merrillville and Day 6, Saturday, July 16, 2016 – Merrillville to Kentland.
