Local Bikers to Participate in "2 Million Bikers to DC" Rally

Posted: Updated:

Thousands of riders from Virginia will participate in the "2 Million Bikers to DC" Rally today.

More than 30 local bikers will take part in the ride. They'll depart from the Roanoke Valley Harley Davidson around 5:30am.

The ride will honor those that lost their lives on September 11, 2001.

This rally will be one of many taking place in Washington DC today. 

The "2 Million Bikers to DC" rally was planned in just a few weeks. Organizers began promoting the event in response to the American Muslim Political Action Committee announcing they would be hosting a rally in DC today.

Local organizers are saying the bike rally will be a peaceful event and is simply meant to honor those impacted by the attacks of 9/11.
