More than 100,000 bikes are expected at the event!

"Rolling to Remember," the successor to "Rolling Thunder," is set to return to Washington, D.C. this Memorial Day Weekend after going virtual in 2020

The annual motorcycle ride is done "to raise awareness of the critical issues facing our nation’s veterans and demand action for the 82,000 service members missing, as well as raise awareness of the 22 veterans who die by suicide each day," says the official website.

More than 100,000 bikes and up to 150,000 riders are expected at the May 30 event, said Joe Chenelly, executive director of AMVETS.
