The following photos were taken when we drove into Washington DC today. We saw a lot of motorbikes getting ready for the Rolling Thunder Parade but was not able to stay. All roads were being blocked off and there was no where for us to park. After a very enjoyable ride ourselves among all these wonderful people we drove back across the Potomac and made our way home. It was a hot one today.
You can read the history of how Rolling Thunder got started if you go here.
This was the starting point at the Pentagon. Roughly 400,000 bikers were expected to turn up today.
A different kind of biker.
These were police motorbikes.
I took a short video near the Pentagon. It's shaky at the end but it gives you a good view of the building and part of the crowd getting ready to start out on their ride.
