Some Richmond police officers are hopping on bicycles to honor fellow officers who died in the line of duty.

The Bike for the Blue memorial ride starts at 6 a.m. Thursday at the state Capitol in Richmond.

The officers are scheduled to ride 117 miles north on U.S. Route 1 to the nation's capital where they'll meet other officers from across the country for a memorial ceremony.

It's the 15th year that Richmond officers are participating in the ride.
