America’s 9/11 Foundation Motorcycle Ride, Leesburg, VA
August 16, 2013 @ 1:30 pm - 2:30 pm
America’s 9/11 Foundation Inc. will be holding their annual commemorative motorcycle ride on Friday, August 16, 2013 in remembrance of all who lost their lives in the September 11, 2001, terrorist attacks, or from illnesses acquired during the aftermath and recovery.
The motorcycle procession will travel through Leesburg VA, coming down King Street through the historic downtown, before proceeding to the Route 7 and 15 Bypass and then on to the Dulles Greenway.
The ride is expected to arrive in Leesburg at about 2:00pm, although this time is dependent upon traffic and weather.
As the motorcycles proceed through town, King Street will be closed to traffic. In addition, King Street intersections will be closed to east-west cross traffic, both vehicular and pedestrian, until the procession has passed. Road closures are anticipated to be in effect for 20 to 25 minutes.
Spectators who wish to watch and cheer as the ride passes through the downtown are encouraged to arrive in downtown Leesburg no later than 1:30pm.
Parking is available in the Town Hall parking garage, at the Liberty Street parking lot and at the Pennington parking lot. For safety reasons, spectators will not be allowed to hand any items to the motorcycle riders. In addition, until the procession has passed by, spectators will not be able to cross King Street on foot.
