Riding with the Heroes

Leave a comment

Was lucky to catch the Motorcycle ride pulling out onto Rt 99 heading towards Rt 32 this morning in Howard County. I got on a hill by Marriots Ridge school and shot the procession. The Riding with the Heroes run Sponsored by Howard County Police and Howard County Fire and Rescue. This was the 2nd one and it looked like a success to me and the route it takes is something I’m going to try in the car soon. Of course with the Top Down.

Here’s hoping it was a safe ride for everyone.

Didn’t get a count but it looked like a few hundred bikers were part of it.

The flag was proudly displayed on several bikes.

From what I could see just about every brand of bike was represented.

Some days I still miss riding. But I’ll take my convertible now and be happy.

For my vehicle is still a two seater, just like a bike.
