Bikers Rally in Nation's Capital

WASHINGTON, D.C. - A large rally to commemorate September 11th has been roaring around the Washington, D.C. area today.

The ride is to remember the victims of 9/11, along with the members of the military called to serve after the attacks.

On the event's Facebook page, 2 Million Bikers to DC, the group said they stand by the constitution and bill of rights but they're "against any fundamental transformation of America."

Organizers tried to get a last-minute permit to close some intersections on their planned route, but the National Park Service denied that request because of traffic concerns.

Permits are not required to hold a rally in the washington, but they are needed when streets are closed. On its Facebook page, the group apologized for the gridlock they may have caused.
