HAGERSTOWN, Md. (AP) — The Maryland State Highway Administration says nearly 2,500 motorcyclists are making their way into northern Virginia from western Maryland.

The agency says participants in America’s 9/11 Ride entered Virginia on U.S. 15 around 2:40 p.m. Friday after crossing three Maryland counties on interstates 68 and 70. They left Shanksville, Pa., Friday morning.

The rest of Friday’s route takes the riders through Leesburg, Va., and ends in Arlington, Va.

Police say they expect a convoy 15 miles long. They are temporarily closing eastbound entrance ramps to let the group pass by.

The bikers will visit the Pentagon Saturday morning before heading north to New York.

      Yeah, how trashy, remembering a terrible day in history. Maybe they would be better off going to the city and buying some crack and then terrorizing motorists on illegal dirt bikes.

    I’m glad someone remembers. No one in DC acts like they remember unless there is a photo-op!

    They are not trash you idiot, they are good people doing something good and how dare you say anything bad about something so good and they are rising money for the families of 9/11. I remember that day like it was yesterday and so many people died for no reason at all. If you don’t have anything nice to say well then don’t say anything at all……….
