This coming October 17, 2016, marks ten years since Manchester Officer Michael Briggs’ End Of Watch. In an effort to continue to remember and honor the way Officer Michael Briggs lived, the Manchester Police will be holding the First Annual “Ride to Remember” bicycle ride.
Officer Briggs was a Mountain Bike Officer and the following year after Mike’s tragic loss, the Manchester Police Department held a similar ride from Bunker Hill Community College in Boston, Ma to Manchester.
The First Annual "Ride to Remember" bicycle ride will start at the New Hampshire State Veterans Cemetery in Boscawen, NH (map)and travel to the New Hampshire Law Enforcement Officers' Memorial in Concord, NH (map). From there it will travel to Mount Calvary Cemetery and Mausoleum in Manchester (map)to honor and remember Manchester Officer Ralph Miller’s tragic loss, 40 years End Of Watch 10-2-16.
See attached sign up form if you wish to participate. If you don’t wish to ride but would still like to participate, a post-ride reception will be held at the Strange Brew Tavern in Manchester (map) where there will be raffle prizes and silent auction items.
All money raised during this event will go towards an event that will take place May 2017 during the National Police Week in Washington DC to honor the 10th year Mike’s name and 40th year Ralph’s name was added to the National Law Enforcement Officers Memorial.
This ride is a fun ride and not a race so please consider participating. It would be an honor to Mike and Ralph’s sacrifice and memory to have a large showing.
Thank you on behalf of all the men and women of the Manchester Police Patrolmans Association and please, Stay Safe!!
