Tributes for 2 slain officers part of Indiana police ride

INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — Cyclists taking part in an annual police bicycle ride around Indiana to benefit the families of officers who’ve died in the line of duty will meet with survivors of two officers fatally shot last year.

The 13-day Cops Cycling for Survivors ride is to begin July 8 after a departure ceremony outside the Statehouse in downtown Indianapolis.

Organizers say the first day’s route will take riders to Lebanon, where they will honor slain Boone County Deputy Jacob Pickett. A stop later in the ride will include meeting relatives of fallen Terre Haute Officer Robert Pitts.

The ride is set to cover nearly 1,000 miles and conclude July 20 at Crown Hill Cemetery in Indianapolis.
