The 2022 Jersey


This year’s jersey is about moving forward. The front of the jersey represents our new logo “Ride for the Fallen”.

We have transferred this great ride to the Wisconsin Riders which is an organization that honors officers that have died in the line of duty. The back represents where we have come from.

This is the 12th running of the Birky Challenge. We are riding in honor of two Officers who died in the line of duty in 2019. Two years ago, one of the founders of the Birky Challenge, Pat Primising passed away from a fight with cancer.
