Ride to Remember

Dozens of people are expected to strap on helmets and pedal for miles this weekend in the third annual "Ride to Remember."

The bike ride is a way to remember Tallahassee police officers who've been killed in the line of duty: Warren Gay, Ernie Ponce De Leon and Dale Green.

Green's widow, Deb, will be riding in the pack this weekend, as well as riding 250 miles to the upcoming law enforcement memorial day in Washington D.C.

Deb Green says, "The Ride to Remember is about Dale, Warren and Ponce who the Tallahassee Ponce Department has lost in the line of duty. I just think it's a great way for the community to remember them, for me to remember them and also the officers, they come out and it feels good to them."

The Ride to Remember gets started bright and early (7 a.m. registration, 8 a.m. start) Saturday morning at the St. Marks trail head. You can ride as far as you like. The shortest route is nine miles and the longest for you experienced cyclists is 62 miles. All proceeds go to the upkeep of the Law Enforcement Memorial Wall and Visitors Center in Washington, D.C.
