The ride remembers volunteers, heroes and victims who lost their lives in the 2001 deadly attacks. Area residents are encouraged to come out and show support for the riders, according to the fire department.

Coming from Bordentown, the ride will go from Route 130 to Route 33, and down through the center of the Borough. The bikes will continue on Mercer Street to North Main St, and back onto Route 130 north.

Don't miss this event. It brought tears to my eyes last year as it is quite a moving experience! Best to see it from downtown to really capture the sound of the motorcycles as it echoes off of the buildings.

Less bikes then ever? It's only 2nd time they were allowed thru town, and last year was the 10th anniversary so there would be more bikes. It was a nice chance for people to come out and pay a little respect and see some nice bikes and dedicated riders
