Let the “colors” – red, white and blue – fly.
Thousands of bikers are waiting for their brothers and sisters to join them in the nation’s capital Wednesday morning to ride in honor of those who perished on September 11, 2001 and last year in Benghazi. The bikers ride to honor every member of our armed forces and our community of first responders.
And the “2 Million Bikers to DC” ride to counter the “Million Muslim March” planned on this emotional day of remembrance for the country.

The “2 Million Bikers to DC” Facebook page grew from 18,000 “likes” when BizPac Review first covered this story to over 137,000 as of Wednesday morning.
The groups organizers, Bill Williamson, Belinda Bee, and John Mullins, have done an incredible job keeping the public informed about the ride – for the bikers, and for those of us who can’t be there, but want to show our support.
And today, it’s full-throttle in D.C. where we hope our nation’s leader hear the thunder of patriotic Americans who will never forget the worst terrorist attack on American soil and who still await answers about Benghazi.
The Stafford County Sheriff’s Office published a press release Tuesday:
INTERSTATE 95 NORTH IN STAFFORD COUNTY WILL BE CLOSED BRIEFLY ON
