The First Annual “Ride to Remember” is a cycling event that will be held this weekend in order to honour the memory of fallen Saskatchewan Police and Peace Officers.

Twenty-five Officers from across the province will depart from the Saskatoon Police Headquarters on Friday, September 23, at 9:30 a.m., and will ride their bicycles to Regina with a stop-over in Watrous. The group is expected to arrive in Regina late Saturday afternoon, in front of the Legislative Building, after having completed over 300 km. The officers will ride no matter what the weather conditions are.
Organizers will be available for comment up until 9:00 am on Friday morning. Inquiries can be directed to saskR2R@gmail.com. Background information is available at www.saskr2r.com
