6th Annual ‘Cops Ride’ Hits Ohio on June 29

The 'Cops Ride' motorcycle procession was established in 2009 to honor fallen officers around the country and raise funds for LEO-related charities.

Since 2009, motorcyclists in Ohio have turned out in the hundreds for the annual “Cops Ride.”

The ride’s purpose is to honor fallen police officers from not just Ohio, but across the country.

Each year, Cops Ride offers a long, enjoyable and safe motorcycle ride as a fundraiser for various law enforcement-related charities. To date, Cops Ride has donated $50,000 to local, state and nationwide charities.

On June 29, 2014, the non-profit organization will host its sixth annual ride, this time benefitting the National Law Enforcement Officers Memorial Fund.

According to the Morning Journal:

An estimated 700 motorcyclists stage at 9 a.m. on Lakeside Avenue. Each rider donates $20 per person to participate in the 40-mile, police-escorted processional ride that begins at 11 a.m. in downtown Cleveland.

The 50-mile police-escorted ride will proceed past several police departments and will around 12:45 p.m. The ride ends at the Lake Erie Harley-Davidson, located at 38401 Chester Road in Avon.
