(Toledo News Now) -
This Sept. 11, two million bikers will descend on the nation's capital to honor the lives lost 12 years ago.
Bikers from all over the country will ride their motorcycles to Washington, DC in a show of solidarity and honor.
"I think it will be the most patriotic display the country has ever seen," said Mike Belair, state coordinator for Ohio.
On Tuesday, Sept. 10, bikers from Ohio will depart from the rest area on I-75, just south of Bowling Green, and begin their journey.
"We're going to show support for the 9/11 victims and their families, for the police, fire and EMS, the tower workers, anyone who had family that had fallen," Belair said. "We want to show support for them."
It started as a small idea on Facebook, and has snowballed into a national movement. To the riders, it doesn't matter if it's the 12th or 20th anniversary of Sept. 11, it's about honoring the lives lost.
"That really hurt, but it brought America together. And united we stand, divided we fall," Belair said. "We should never forget, never. Even another 12 years from now, you know, I'm sure there's going to be another ride, and I'll be going then."
When the bikers arrive in DC, they will ride for four hours on a route through the city.
