The 21st Annual Ride of the Patriots® to Rolling Thunder® is the largest open ride to Rolling Thunder. Traditionally, nearly 5000 motorcycles have joined the Ride of the Patriots to remember and honor those in uniform who serve bravely to protect our nation and our liberty. The ride originates from Patriot Harley-Davidson in the City of Fairfax and has become the signature event for the Fairfax, VA H.O.G. Chapter. The community continues to work cooperatively with this event to bring a safer, more enjoyable and more meaningful event to everyone involved. The event also provides an organized staging area and safe trip for riders to the Pentagon and Rolling Thunder. View the entire schedule.  You can attend the send off ceremony at Patriot Harley-Davidson, on Sunday May, 27th at 8am or meet up with the thousands of riders along Constitution Avenue in DC at noon.  Be aware that roads will be closed to the general public to make room for the influx of riders.  Taking Metro downtown would be the best option if you wish to view the event along the National Mall.
