How do I apply?
Click the forms link on this website if you would like to ride with Chapter II. Login or register on the forms section and complete an online application. Please remember that there are several Chapters who ride different routes. Chapter II rides from Southern / Central New Jersey across Delaware and Maryland en route to Washington DC. Remember all Chapters meet on the outskirts of Washington DC and ride from a designated point into the National Police Officer's Memorial together. If you have any questions please feel free to email any of the Eboard members under the Executive Board section. We are always available to answer questions about the Tour.
Who can be a Police Unity Tour® Member?
Chapter II leaves New Jersey on May 9th and rides to Washington DC until May 12th. Chapter II also participates in the National Law Enforcement Candlelight Vigil on May 13th.
How much does it cost to participate?
Members are required to raise a minimum of $1700.00. All members are required to submit a non refundable and non transferrable $250.00 by the January application deadline. All donations are tax deductible.
When is my money due?
The deadline for applications and the $250.00 deposit is January 2013. All remaining money is due at the meeting in April.
What safety equipment do I need to participate?
All bicycle riders must wear a helmet and eye protection at all times. New members are strongly urged to get "fitted" to their bicycles. While road bikes are the predominant choice, mountain and hybrids bicycles are welcome. Each rider should train and be familiar with their bicycles. Extra tires and water bottles are a basic necessity.
What do I need to wear while on the Police Unity Tour?
All riders must wear a PUT jersey everyday and black riding shorts/pants. All support personnel must wear black shorts/pants and a yellow support shirt on the first three days and a blue one the 12th.
Where does my money go?
Of the $1700.00 each member raises, around $1000.00 goes toward the National Law Enforcement Memorial. Our collective donation is then utilized to run the Memorial and the National Police Officer’s Museum. The remainder is utilized in operating the Tour. This may appear to be a lot of money to participate but there are considerable expenses, which are incurred as a result of this venture i.e. hotels, insurance, supplies etc. Since our inception we have risen in excess of one million dollars for the N.L.E.O.M.F. and are nationally recognized as the largest private and or corporate sponsor.
How do I get home?
Each rider is responsible for making their own return travel arrangements. Chapter II can transport luggage and bicycles back to New Jersey but this must be prearranged. Members are responsible to make arrangements for pickup of their luggage and bicycles at a predetermined date and time after the tour. Information about this will be disseminated at the January Meeting. Anyone who is having difficulty finding a ride should speak to a member of the Chapter II executive board to coordinate with another member or group to carpool.
