Thousands of Motorcyclists Ride Through D.C. On 9/11

Thousands of motorcyclists rode through the streets of Washington D.C. to commemorate September 11 Wednesday.

The bikers are part of a group called "Two Million Bikers To D.C."

One Washington D.C. news outlet reported the group did not hit the million mark, but still thousands of motorcyclists made the trek.

The bikers say the ride is to remember the victims of 9/11 and to honor the troops who served after the attack on America.

The group's Facebook page said it is against any fundamental transformation of America.

Organizers attempted to secure a last-minute permit to shut down some intersections on their route, but the National Park Service denied the permit, citing traffic concerns.

You don't need a permit to hold a rally in the Capitol, but you need one to close streets.

The group, on Facebook, apologized for any gridlock caused by its ride.
