America’s 9/11 Ride Travels Through Cumberland

August 20th, 2021 by WCBC Radio

A group of motorcyclists honoring those killed in the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attacks made their way through downtown Cumberland Friday morning. The ride though Cumberland lasted only about 7 minutes but there were people lined up in Mechanic and Frederick Streets waving signs and flags. Cumberland City Councilman Rock Cioni joined WCBC’s coverage of the event as he watched from the Narrows…

 

Prior to passing through Cumberland, bikers participating in America’s 9/11 Ride began at 6:45 a.m. at the Highland Harley-Davidson store in Somerset, Pennsylvania, before making their way to the Flight 93 National Memorial. Once leaving Cumberland, the riders made a scheduled stop for lunch in Hagerstown and will end the day in Arlington, Virginia. They will arrive at their final destination, New York City, on Saturday night, where they will participate in a ceremony at the site of the World Trade Center. The ride is organized by the nonprofit America’s 911 Foundation, which offers scholarships to children of law enforcement officers and first responders.
