LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) – Police Officers and Sheriff's Deputies from all over Texas come to Lubbock first thing Monday morning to start a 6-day bike ride across the state. 

The event, called We Remember, honors fallen officers including Corporal D. Robert Harvey of Lubbock, who died in a car crash last year while responding to call. 

It starts in Lubbock at 9:30 a.m., and continues to Bridgeport, Dallas, Anahuac, Pasadena, Harris County, Victoria, Corpus Christi, Del Rio, and Burnet before finally arriving in Austin. On the last day, May 8th, there will be a candle light vigil in Austin to honor all officers as well as those who passed away in 2009. 

A written statement says, "These officers begin their trek by accepting a wreath in honor of Cpl. D. Robert Harvey.  The presentation will take place at the flag poles on the North side of the Sheriff's Office."
