MRF Bikers Inside the Beltway 2009 Event Details
The Motorcycle Riders Foundation
(MRF) is holding its inaugural ride to
the Nation’s Capitol for Motorcycle Awareness Month. Known as "Bikers
Inside the Beltway," the event will be dedicated to its creator, the
recently departed MRF Vice President and long-time motorcyclists' rights
legend Michael "Boz" Kerr.
The MRF is encouraging bikers nationwide
to ride their motorcycles to
Washington DC for this historic event. We have reserved secure parking for
motorcycles adjacent to the U.S. Capitol; this location should make for an
impressive display of bikes.
We have invited all members of Congress
to attend the event, but if you
are planning to be here you should let your U.S. Senators and
Representative know, and ask them to step outside for a photo op with you
and a backdrop of motorcycles. The MRF's DC staff will help coordinate
any details and answer any questions you may have about arranging meetings
with your members of Congress.
What: Motorcycle Riders Foundation
"Bikers Inside the Beltway" National
Motorcycle Awareness Month Ride and Lobby Day
When: May 14, 2009, 9:00 am - 2:30 pm
Where: Reserved motorcycle parking
is along the 0-100 block of 3rd Street
SW, only steps from the U.S. Capitol. A Washington DC map will be posted

Due to the popularity of this event,
the MRF obtained additional parking.
We will meet at the 3rd street parking location at 9:00 am and walk one
block to the staging area on the Capitol grounds where a smaller number of
bikes will be parked.
