WLOS reported a group of motorcyclists planned to go ahead with a Sept. 11 rally in Washington, D.C., though the city denied the bikers a permit on grounds that it would be too disruptive to traffic on a work day.
"2 Million Bikers to D.C." planned the rally as a counter to American Muslim Political Action Committee's "Million American March Against Fear," to be held on the National Mall. A permit would have allowed the bikers to traverse D.C. with police escorts and without having to stop for red lights.
They can still bike along the city's streets, but they won't have police escorts to help them push through traffic. "2 Million Bikers" said the purpose of the rally is to "remember those who were killed on 911 and honor our armed forced who fought those who precipitated this attack."
