Sep 13th, Rattle the Runway Ride
9-11 Rattle the Runway Ride
2009 EVENT INFO
This year's event will take place on Sunday, September 13, 2009. Again this year, we will be staging in the rear of the National Air and Space Museum - Steven F. Udvar-Hazy Center for our opening ceremonies.
After a police-escorted ride from Dulles Airport down to the Pentagon, closing ceremonies will take place in the North Parking Lot at the Pentagon. After the closing ceremonies, we will be able to visit the actual Pentagon Memorial after the closing ceremonies.
Motorcycle staging at the Opening Ceremonies location at the National Air and Space Museum - Steven F. Udvar-Hazy Center will take place from 8:00am to 10:00am. The actual Opening Ceremonies will start at 9:00am.
From VA State Route 28, exit at the Air and Space Museum Parkway to a right turn at GATE 317. Once on Dulles Airport grounds, follow Police directions to the staging area. Click here for a map.
In addition, our friends at Devil Dawg Custom Cycles will open early (6:00am) and offer Starbucks coffee and bagels. From there, a Police-escorted ride will leave at 8:00am for the airport staging area.
This is an event open to all motorcyclists, and all makes and models of motorcycles are welcome. You do NOT need to register; just show up!
Our event will take place on the Sunday after September 11th due to several logistical reasons:
More people are able to attend during a weekend;
The South Parking Lot of the Pentagon would not be available for our use during a weekday;
The VA State Police would not allow for any road closures for our escorted ride during a weekday.
