Bikers Inside the Beltway Date Confirmed
WASHINGTON, DC (March 26, 2009) -- The Motorcycle Riders Foundation is pleased to announce that the Sergeant-at-Arms of the United States House of Representatives has approved our request to hold an event inside the Capitol complex. The event is planned for the morning and early afternoon of Thursday, May 14th, 2009. By all means, save that date on your calendars and plan to be in Washington, DC.
Bikers Inside the Beltway will take place to educate members of Congress on the importance of motorcycle safety and awareness programs. The MRF will also take the opportunity to reaffirm its position that "2010 funds" (funds appropriated by Congress to support motorcycle rider education and awareness) have had a positive impact and should be preserved.
The MRF has secured limited parking space on the grounds of the U.S. Capitol. If you are sincerely interested in riding your motorcycle into the grounds please email or call 202-546-0983 to join the list for admittance. Due to space and security concerns by the administration of the House of Representatives, we may be forced to limit the number of motorcycles that we can bring onto the grounds. So please let us know as soon as possible.
Of course, there is no limit on the number of people who can attend. The MRF is still working with House officials and will present more details shortly.
