MRF Bikers Inside the Beltway 2009 Event Details
WASHINGTON, DC (May 5, 2009) -- 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.
