Dallas Police Association: 1412 E Griffin St, Dallas, United States
Saturday, June , 2022, the Dallas Police Cycling Team will ride the 7th annual Ride to Remember. This year’s unity ride will be 88 miles in memory of the 87 Dallas Police Officers that have died in the line of duty during the history of our Department and for DART Officer Brent Thompson who died in the line of duty with four Dallas Police Officers on 7/7/16.
The ride average speed will be 14-15 MPH if you fall behind you must go in the sag wagon until the next stop, this is to ensure everyone’s safety and to keep the whole group on schedule. It is our goal to have every rider make it to each station on their bike; however, being such a large group, we must remain together and keep an average pace. If a Ride Marshall asks you to sag, please comply. To keep everyone safe, the Marshall will ask only twice before leaving you to finish on your own.
Water, Gatorade, and snacks are all included in your registration and will be available at each of our stops. To keep the time down, and spend less time in the heat, we will keep our stops to 10-20 minutes (depending on the needs of the group). The ride is capped at 100 riders so please register early. We had 100 riders register last year and expect the same this year.
For those who have not ridden in a unity-style ride, this will be different from almost any ride you have participated in. Because of the uniqueness of this ride, we have some rules that everyone must obey.
Please have your bike in good working order prior to the ride. A bike fit is highly recommended and will help with those aches and pains on this long ride. We will have bike mechanics with us to fix minor issues.
This is a long ride so please have comfortable cycling equipment. Riders are encouraged to wear a Dallas Police Cycling Team jersey but are not required to participate. You can order Jerseys, Shorts, Socks, and water bottles during registration, the day of the ride, or on our team merchandise website.
Parking opens at 5:30 AM

Bring comfortable riding gear for this ride and pay attention to the weather. We will have our trailer with us along the ride so feel free to bring any clothing you may think you need, you will have access to it during our stops.
Packet pick-up will be available the day of the ride and on Friday, June 4th.
