NATIONAL NEWS (KETK) — Organizers of the "2,000,000 Bikers to D.C." hoped for a special "non-stop" riding permit to cruise through Washington, D.C., in remembrance of those lost September 11, 2001. The ride also serves as a remembrance for the armed forces who have fought for our nation.
The bikers were denied their permit request. The bikers are riding through D.C., in remembrance, anyway. The group said even if it takes all day, they will obey all traffic signs and yield to all pedestrians.
They also want the public to know, this is not a protest, they are riding strictly to honor America. Every biker is wearing a name tag to honor a 9/11 victim.
