The Police Unity Tour is a bicycle ride beginning in Portsmouth, Virginia and ending at the National Law Enforcement Officers Memorial in Washington DC to raise awareness about those officers who have died in the line of duty and money for the National Law Enforcement Officers Memorial.
Riders must be willing to train extensively to prepare for this 250 mile ride. It is strongly suggested that you ride (and train with) a quality road bike. While mountain bikes and hybrids are not prohibited, they are discouraged.
In addition, riders must be willing to complete and submit two qualifying rides. The qualifying rides will be in line with our fundraising deadlines of March 1 and April 1. The first ride (to be completed by March 1) will be a 50 mile ride with an average of at least a 15 MPH pace and within 4 hours. The second (to be completed by April 1) will be a ride of 75 miles with an average of at least 15 MPH pace and within 7 hours.
There will be an email sent about the qualifying rides once the registration process is complete for all riders explaining this process in further detail.
Participants (both riders & support) must be willing to raise a minimum of $2000 for the Police Unity Tour. The registration fee for this event is $100, and that will count towards your $2000. There will be a schedule of fundraising deadlines that all members will be expected to follow. First year members must have at least $500 in their fundraising account within 60 days of registering.
