A small group of police officers are riding their bikes 1800 miles across Texas to pay tribute to members of law enforcement who have died in the line of duty. 

Monday morning members of the Texas Peace Officers Memorial Bike Trek made a stop in Texarkana, Texas to offer support to the family of Officer William Sprague who was killed last year.

The 5 officers met with Sprague's wife, Stephanie and their son.  They also gave Stephanie a special flag to fly outside her home in memory of her husband.

The bikers will make 13 stops in 11 days and the trek will end May 3 in Austin.
