Cyclists ride in memory of fallen police officers

Hundreds of cyclists stopped in Jersey City as they peddle across New Jersey and head to Washington, D.C. in a tribute to fallen police officers.

"I ride in memory of my father, who was a police officer killed in the World Trade Center, named George Howard," said Christopher Howard.

He was just one of 600 Police Unity Tour riders - some from as far away as Las Vegas - that will try to bring awareness for officers that have died in the line of duty.

"It's something we could never put a price on. It's just an awesome experience," said Las Vegas Police Sgt. Richard Strader.
