So a few days ago I came across this event that seems to be building steam and growing. Meeting sites are being made in VA and a national link up has been established in Landover, MD at an abandoned mall. Then the ride through DC takes place.
My numbers show about 9.5 million ( http://www.howmanyarethere.org/how-m...a_close_button ) Still, as "Jonesee" has pointed that's a whole lot of riders participating in the program ... How many Port-A-Johns would that take??? Still the idea is commendable and if they do pull it off what a sight that would be!!
I could be wrong, but I believe I heard this is a ride to show support for the many that lost their lives, families of those that lost their lives on 9/11 and in the fights, wars, conflicts and acts of terror that have happened since that terrible day. I also read that this event was originally brought to the table because there is a Million Muslium March (MMM) on DC that same day, again, this is only something that I have heard and can not confirm it.
Both the MMM and the 2Million Bikers in DC on the same day is fine, might be a little crowded but both groups have the right to assemble and express their cause in DC under the 1st Amendment of our U.S. Consitution as long as they both do it peacefully.
I wish all that participate in this even good luck, have fun and be heard!!!
This is an important ride. There is a million muslim march going on in DC and this ride would be to counteract that march.
I would go and still might go, it is my son's 11th birthday on 9/11. Still no excuse.
One more rider is one more, no matter how you count.
