Motorcyclists are expected to ride up and down M Street. The event will raise funds for amfAR, a foundation for AIDS research.

It is free and open to the public. Stone is the group’s global fundraising chairman.

On Saturday, Stone will present Gates an award during a benefit concert at the Kennedy Center. The concert will feature a performance by Jessye Norman and appearances by other celebrities.
