Police bike ride helps officers’ survivors

– A group of 66 active and retired police officers are going on a bicycle ride around Indiana to benefit the families and co-workers of colleagues who have died in the line of duty.

Cops Cycling for Survivors will begin its trip Monday at the Law Enforcement/Firefighter Memorial near the Statehouse in downtown Indianapolis. Their trip will last 13 days and cover nearly 1,000 miles.

The annual trip is intended to raise funds and awareness for surviving family members and co-workers of officers killed while on duty. Money raised previously has been donated to 20 different survivor support organizations, scholarships and camps.

This ride honors Indianapolis Officer Rod Bradway, who was shot and killed last September responding to a domestic dispute. Bradway is survived by his wife and two children.
