The America’s 911 Ride has received the go-ahead for its final ride through downtown Leesburg.
Ride organizer Ted Sjurseth shared the news with Loudoun Now on Monday. There was some threat to the route’s planned pass through downtown Leesburg via King Street, but the Virginia State Police informed Sjurseth that, since this is the final year of the ride, they will allow the riders to pass along the usual route.
The ride, in which hundreds of motorcyclists visit the sight of the 9-11 attacks in Pennsylvania, Arlington and New York City, is expected to pass along King Street on Friday, Aug. 19, during the early afternoon.
