Join us for the Houston Tipping Memorial Bike Ride. LAPD Officer Houston Tipping tragically died while instructing bicycle school at the Los Angeles Police Academy. This memorial ride will serve as an opportunity to honor his memory and raise funds for his family.
The ride will begin at the LAPD Elysian Park Academy, travel through Griffith Park before the first rest stop at the North Hollywood Police Station, where refreshments and bathrooms will be provided. The ride will resume and travel through the Sepulveda Basin Recreation Area before arriving at Devonshire Division, Officer Tipping's last division of assignment.
This ride will be led by a police escort at a pace of approximately 15 mph to keep the majority of the group together. There will be lunch available to purchase, live music, static displays, and vendor booths at Devonshire Station. There will also be snacks, and beverages for those that will continue back to the police academy.
