BIKE RIDE FOR PEACE: Today, Sunday, August 12, 2018, the men and women of the Boston Police Department, along with members of the community took to the streets for the 3rd Annual Bike Ride for Peace, which started at 1:00pm, and began and ended at the Franklin Park Zoo's front entrance. 50 free helmets were given to the first 50 kids who showed up for the ride. Riders of all ages were encouraged to attend. As the name suggests, the Bike Ride for Peace is all about promoting peace, unity and togetherness in our community. Together we make our city safer and the Ride for Peace gives us a chance to send that message while coming together for a really good cause.
