This Motorcycle Ride is in remembrance on the 16th Anniversary of those who served, protected, volunteered and lost their lives that tragic day. All bikes welcome! Sport bikes, foreign & domestic bikes, trikes, side cars, choppers, home-made bikes, and anything that would require a DOT Motorcycle license.
On 9/11 one of those lost was Richard Allen Pearlman, the youngest first responder lost that day. He joined the Forest Hills Ambulance Corp at the age of 14 as a Junior Corp. member and excelled in the position of Dispatcher and at 18 joined the Senior Corp. Richie headed to the WTC on foot from his job at a law firm and was ordered back to his job by his employer for safety reasons, but remained at the WTC site.
A picture on pages 16-17 in Newsweek's Extra Edition of America Under Attack shows Richie aiding the injured. He was only 18 years old. We have named the ride in his honor, Ride For Richie.
All registered riders will receive a FREE commemorative challenge coin
(must attend ride to receive free coin). Additional coins available for purchase.
