As a participant in LEU's Rode to Hope bicycle ride, I'm Honored to ride in this year's Ruff Ride which is 185 mile mountain bike ride from Maryland to DC during National Police Week that Honors our fallen K-9's. We have ridden in years past on the road courses but this year will be a new experience. RIP Hyco
