In honor and memory of the lives lost during the 9/11 attacks, thousands of bikers banded together for a motorcycle rally on September 11th 2013 in Washington DC.
The group, adeptly named ‘Two Million Bikers to D.C’ initiated a Facebook page prior to the run and made it very clear that ride was all about peace. The bikers who organized the group stated “THIS EVENT IS TO OUR HONOR AND RESPECT THOSE WHO WERE KILLED ON 9/11 AND THEIR FAMILIES! IT IS ALSO IN REMEMBRANCE OF THOSE IN ALL OUR ARMED FORCES WHO FOUGHT THOSE WHO PRECIPITATED THIS ATTACK!”
The bikers initially met up at Harley Davidson of Washington in Fort Washington, Maryland, at 11 in the morning.
Given the expected number of riders, law enforcement was out in full force too. A traffic warning was issued to motorists, asking them to check blind spots, as many bikers cruised through the downtown areas of D.C.
The bikers hope anyone seeing their large group would understand the meaning behind the ride was to promote love and support of America and freedom.
