fallen officer ride...

son and i went on the fallen officer memorial ride this weekend. the ride is to generate money for the families of police officers killed in the line of duty... for the price of admission, we got lunch, a ride and a chance for a door prize. not sure of everything they were giving away, but son won a hooters wing party for ten!!! woohoo!!!

not sure what i was expecting, but a lot of bikes turned up for the ride... i would guesstimate close to three hundred bikes. they were expecting rain, but it was replaced by heat - probably the hottest day of the year so far. i would normally take the rain over the heat. considering the number of riders and the range of skill, the heat was definitely the better option...

the ride left ray price, went to the raleigh police department fallen officer memorial, the north carolina highway patrol fallen officer memorial and the wake county sheriff's office fallen officer memorial...
