Ride and remember local peace officers who have fallen in the line of duty.
The 3rd Annual New Mexico Law Enforcement Memorial ride is a fully supported bicycle ride remembering officers who have fallen in the line of duty.
Starting in Downtown Albuquerque, the ride heads north 100 kilometers (64 miles) to the New Mexico State Law Enforcement officers memorial in Santa Fe.
The memorial ride pays tribute to New Mexico fallen officers. Though this journey is not any easy one, each mile is a tribute to those who have made the ultimate sacrifice. With your bib you will receive lunch and a complimentary ride with your bicycle back to Albuquerque, courtesy of the N.M. Rail Runner Express.
A 30 kilometer ride will be optional route to those wishing to participate in the event.

There will be transportation back to the start for those who choose the 30K option. Lunch provided.
