Traffic advisory: Rolling Thunder is charging through the Washington DC metropolitan area for its annual Memorial Day run. If you hear the distant rumble of this famous legion of motorcyclists, stay clear of the road. They will stop for none.



An estimated 1 million bikers and spectators have gathered in the district for the Ride for Freedom.

In addition to ripping through the streets, Rolling Thunder will also host a candlelight vigil at the Vietnam Veterans Memorial, lay a wreath upon the Tomb of the Unknown Solider, and participate in the National Memorial Day Parade.

If you see a group of bikers decked out in American flags, be sure to give them a wave and thank them for their continued support of our armed forces.
