“We’re here for the people killed in the line of duty and we’re here for their families, too,” O’Neill said. commissioner O’Neil joined the group only for the first part of the trip.

“I’m looking forward to going through the Holland Tunnel on a bike,” he added.

“No words can capture all that loss but what we can do is honor those individuals,” New Jersey Attorney General Gurbir Grewal said at the pre-bike tour press conference.”We can honor them as you’re doing by riding in their memory, by not forgetting.”
The group from New York is expecting to meet up with about 1,00 others when they reach Washington D.C.
