Bikers on Parade Takes Its Last Ride
Motorcyclists in the 9th Annual Bikers on Parade for the USA took to the streets for the last time for the event. Organizers say it is the largest and longest veterans motorcycle parade in the nation.
As motorcycles rumbled along the 23-mile route with police escorts, many spectators lined the roadways, some holding flags, some simply waving to the bikers who passed by.
The event was started in November 2001 in memory of Sept. 11 and to honor veterans, law enforcement and fire rescue personnel. Organizers say over $500,000 have been raised by Bikers on Parade and that money goes to the American Red Cross and local veterans organizations.
Although this was officially the last Bikers on Parade event, many organizers and spectators said they hope someone else will do something next year that is similar to it.
