SHANKSVILLE, Pa. (AP) — Hundreds of bikers are setting out from the site of the Flight 93 crash to honor the victims of the Sept. 11, 2001, terror attacks.

More than 700 riders will take part in the 455-mile trek sponsored by America’s 911 Foundation.

The ride begins Friday morning in Somerset in rural southwestern Pennsylvania. The bikers are setting out for the temporary Flight 93 memorial at the crash site in Shanksville, about 10 miles outside of town. They will continue on to the Pentagon before wrapping up the ride in New York City.

This is the group’s 10th ride to honor victims of the attacks.
