Do you know what motorcyclists share with law enforcement and the military? Brotherhood. That’s why people gathered for the 5th Annual Front Range Fallen Officer Memorial Motorcycle Ride. It’s only fitting that this event should happen so close to one of America’s most important holidays—Memorial Day.
Brothers in Arms Honoring Fallen Officers
More than just motorcyclists gathered at Cheyenne Mountain Air Force Station on June 1. Police officers, military personnel and citizens came together to honor the officers we lost over the past year. One-hundred riders from across Colorado came together for this year’s ride, making it one of the largest gatherings since the ride started.
These road warriors started their trip to honor the fallen at Cheyenne Mountain Air Force Station before riding to Fort Carson, Schriever Air Force Base, Peterson Air Force Base and the United States Air Force Academy. The ride wrapped up back at the Cheyenne Mountain Air Force Station with a barbeque as weary riders settled down to share food and their respects.
When riding down the road, motorcyclists will wave at one another to recognize the bond motorcyclists share. A similar bond can be felt by the servicemen and women of our military as well as with the officers who work in law enforcement. Bringing these groups together to honor those who have been lost may be the ultimate testament of that bond and it is even more fitting that such a get together should happen on the week of Memorial Day.
For those who have served our country both domestically and abroad, the motorcycling attorneys of Metier Law Firm would like to thank you!
