"10 years later, we've grown to a group of about 200 riders and we've moved our memorial to Patriot's Day to honor both those that have gone before us in the United States and the state of Iowa and also those that were killed on the attacks on America on September 11th of 2001," said Captain Gene Evans of the Osage Fire Department.
The hope is that no one will forget the tragic events of September 11th, and the lives that were lost.
"Americans should never forget. Firefighters, Peace officers and EMS providers that gave that sacrifice on September 11th should never be forgotten. Nor should the ones that die in the line of duty everyday, nor should they forget the soldiers and service members who are risking their lives and giving their life to keep this flag free," said Evans.
More than a hundred riders began the long stretch across north Iowa earlier this morning and picked up other riders along the way.
