2019 POLICE UNITY TOUR

#BearGoesEverywhere this week the Bear followed our 2019 LASD Police Unity Bicycle Tour, Southern California Chapter VII, and rode past the George Washington Crossing Statue located near the Delaware River in the New Jersey / Pennsylvania border area.

The George Washington statue represents the crossing of the Delaware River, which occurred on the night of December 25–26, 1776, during the American Revolutionary War, which was the first move in a surprise attack organized by George Washington against the Hessian forces in Trenton, New Jersey.

The Police Unity Tour was organized in 1997, in efforts to bring public awareness of law enforcement officers that have died in the line of duty and to honor their sacrifices, and to raise funds for the National Law Enforcement Officers Memorial and Museum. The tour started with 18 riders on a bicycle ride from Florham Park, NJ to the National Law Enforcement Officers Memorial in Washington D.C. 

Riders must be willing to train extensively to prepare for this arduous 3-day, 250 mile ride that begins in Somerset, NJ and ends in Washington D.C.

Until next time, everyone stay safe and look out for the Bear in your city.
