Remember 9/11 - The Ride
Marks Nine Years of "Never Forget"

Photos by Bart Mitchell

     3,000+ riders hit the road to participate in this year's Remember 9/11 - The Ride which traveled from Cook's Corner through Orange County, CA. to Belmont Shore in Long Beach, making this the ninth year this ride has been held.  A non-profit event, The Ride organized and founded by Gary Biggerstaff (a Long Beach Fireman)  and sponsored by Accord Community First uses proceeds from donations to benefit Southern California Charities like Wounded Warrior Project, George S. Howard Scholarship, and the Long Beach Firefighter's Museum.  Having been at Cook's Corner the previous day for another patriotic event, roving reporter Bart Mitchell was on the scene as this year's ride shaped up.
