Montuore of the Florham Park Police Department, with the hope of bringing public awareness of Police Officers who have died in the line of duty and to honor their sacrifices. The riders will end their 4 day ride in Washington D.C. at the National Law Enforcement Officers Memorial. This year Captain Steve Warrelmann from Station 26 will be participating in the ride.
