New York City Police to Embark On Bike Ride From Pentagon to Ground Zero In Memory of 9/11 Tragedy

On September 8, 2004 approximately 100 law enforcement officers from around the country will depart on bicycles from the Pentagon in Arlington, Virginia and embark on a four day, 265 mile trek up the East Coast. This ride will end in the early morning hours of September 11, 2004 at Ground Zero, New York City.

The annual 9/11 'Tour de Force' ride was started in 2002 as a memorial to the fallen NYPD, FDNY and civilians who gave their lives in the September 11, 2001 attacks. The 9/11 'Tour de Force' challenge represents not only the strength and resolve of the NYPD, and the individuals involved but of all Americans. In the great American spirit, the group has been met along the route with a show of solidarity by local officials and citizens and police department, including the Perth Amboy (NJ) Police Department who join them for the last 30 miles of the journey."
