The 2017 State Ride is set for Monday, March 27 – Sat April 1, 2017

The State Ride is an annual, week long motorcycle ride that visits every Florida police department who lost an officer during the previous year. You will have the rare opportunity to meet the family, friends and co-workers who were a part of the Fallen Officers everyday life. This is a way to express ourselves in a one-on-one basis with those who were closest with that officer.

 

 

 

 

Everybody is encouraged and invited to attend in all or any part of this ride. If you plan on staying in any of the hotels, please contact Connie 561-601-8205 for reservations
