The following is a message from Bruce White, the Event Director of the National Memorial Trail Alliance. We will be joining them again as they ride through this area. If you have interest in joining them in any of their other endeavors, contact Bruce directly. He will also be coming to our May Grill and Chill to meet with club riders and talk about the events.
The September 11th National Memorial Trail Alliance is a non-profit organization that is developing a 1,300 mile multi-purpose trail connecting the Pentagon Memorial in DC to the Flight 93 Memorial in Shanksville, PA to the Ground Zero Memorial in NYC and back to the Pentagon Memorial in DC . The Mission Statement for this organization is clearly that we must “Never Forget” our fallen heroes from the terrorist attacks of 9/11/01.
In June 2022, a group of 25 cyclists completed a 23 day, 1,100 mile trip to all three crash sites, marking the first organized bike tour to complete the entire triangle. The LWA met us in Fleetwood and guided us into the Velodrome and treated us to lunch and a few laps on the track. It was truly a highlight of the trip.
In 2023, the 9/11 NMTA will be offering three events that we hope will interest members of the LWA.
