Police officer challenges kids to a bike race

To protect and to serve... and to race?

An Indianapolis Metropolitan Police Department officer challenged some local children to a friendly bicycle race, and the adorable photos are making people across the country smile.

Officers Roman Williams-Ervin and Stacy Riojas have been using bikes to patrol the city's East District over the last month, Fox 59 reported.

While on patrol last week, they encountered two kids riding their bikes. Officer Riojas asked the youngsters if they thought they could beat Officer Williams-Ervin in a race.

The kids accepted the challenge, and the race was on!

After the friendly competition, the kids told the officers that they had always wanted to play with a cop. They even said that they wanted to be officers when they grew up.

On your mark....ready....let's go!!! East District Officer Williams-Ervin racing his bike with kids in the community....
