100th Anniversary Commemorative Motorcycle Ride
July 21, 2016 - 10:45am
Sign Up Now! June 24th, 2017
In 1917, upon completion of their training, the newly organized New York State Troopers left “Camp Newayo” to report to their recently established State Police barracks throughout New York State. A number were transported by train with their assigned horses. The remainder left on horseback. It was a long trip as some of the stations were hundreds of miles away. However, upon arriving at their new Troop Headquarters, they found that they had also been assigned one (1) Model “T” vehicle and three (3) motorcycles! Motorcycles have been a part of the New York State Police for 100 years. While we no longer have Troopers on horseback, we still have motorcycles. JOIN US IN CELEBRATING OUR 100TH ANNIVERSARY!
The CONCEPT behind this event is to simulate the “Ride” taken 100 years ago by those new Troopers. We are hoping that Members, past & present, will express their pride in being Troopers and take part in the 100th Anniversary “Commemorative Ride” on June 24, 2017.
Please see the following for information regarding tickets for the various events and available souvenir items. Space is severely limited and immediate registration is suggested to insure your participation in this historic State Police 100th Anniversary “Commemorative Ride” event. You may participate in the “Ride” on motorcycles or cars (horses just can’t keep up!!).
