Who Are We?
The ride has gone through many changes over the years, but one thing has remained constant…the cyclists’ dedication to honoring fallen law enforcement heroes and supporting their survivors left behind.
Two people who were integral to the success of Cops Cycling were Lt. Gary Dudley of the Indiana State Police and Retired Chief Gary Martin of the Lake County Police Department. Lt. Dudley took the organizational and emotional lead and kept the wheels rolling after the first two years riding to Washington, D.C. Wanting to do more to support survivors on a local level, Gary brought the ride home to Indiana.
Cops Cycling for Survivors Foundation, Incorporated is focused on compassion, integrity, and dedication. Our core mission is to raise awareness of fallen law enforcement officers who are killed in the line of duty and their survivors. Funds generated will be utilized to perpetuate the memories of the officers and support their survivors left behind.
