Tour de Force bicyclists crest hill in Roslindale and head down to Boston Harbor

Several hundred bicyclists rode from New York to Boston in a four-day ride to remember 9/11 and raise funds for the families of police officers killed in the line of duty. Early this afternoon, they turned up Washington Street in Dedham. As they crested the hill at West Roxbury Parkway, they got a view of downtown Boston - where they'd end their ride at the harbor.
