More than 30 cyclists on their way to Washington, D.C., stopped in Camden on May 3 in honor of fallen law enforcement officers. The group -- which included cyclists from Arizona, Colorado, the D.C. metropolitan area, Florida, Georgia, Minnesota, New York Pennsylvania and Wisconsin -- was also raising funds for a camp for the children of fallen law enforcement officers in East Troy, Wis. Known as Law Enforcement United (LEU), the riders committed to raising $1,100 each for the camp as part of the ride.
