            Franconia officers patrolling on Memorial Day took a few minutes off to show respect and appreciation to the injured veterans taking part in a rehabilitative ride consisting of more than 300 bicyclists.  The event is called Memorial Challenge and the group was riding from Arlington to Virginia Beach over a period of five days.  They passed through a portion of the Franconia District on Monday, May 28.  Some of the cyclists are propelling their bicycles with hand cranks after having injuries or loss of use of their legs.
