Cycling for legacy

31 Mar 2016

Local police officers will participate in a gruelling bike ride next month to raise awareness for Police Legacy.

The 360 km ride will see a group of around 70 cyclists, ride from the Victorian border to the National Police Memorial in Canberra during the Police Legacy Ride to the Wall.

President of the Victoria Police Cycling Club and Docklands-based detective Sen-Sgt Boris Buick said the ride was a visible sign of support for the families of serving police members killed on or off duty.

Victoria Police Legacy was established in 1980 and works to provide on-going support for the families of deceased police members.

Sen-Sgt Buick explained the ride would start at Corryong in northern Victoria and continue on to Tumut and then onto Gundagai and Yass.

“We’ll then be meeting up with our counterparts from NSW police to complete the final leg of the ride from Yass to the National Police Memorial in Canberra.”

“We’re riding to make a difference in the lives of those who have lost a father, mother or loved one while serving and protecting the community,” Sen-Sgt Buick said.

The riding group is predominately made up of Victoria police members and staff and around 25 per cent of the group is based at the Victoria Police Centre on Flinders St in Docklands. Police members from across the state, including Benalla, Mildura, Mansfield, Castlemaine, Wangaratta and Traralgon will also participate.

While the ride aims to raise awareness it will also raise funds for Police Legacy.

“The money we raise can have long-lasting effects, assisting with the education and development of legatee children and helping families to thrive despite their loss,” Sen-Sgt Buick said.

The 2016 Police Legacy Ride to the wall begins on May 12 and ends at the National Police Memorial in Canberra on May 16.
