  • Rattle the Runway

    Welcome to the official site of the Rattle The Runway Ride. If you are a motorcycle rider and enjoy the company of other riders, you don’t want to miss this event. It’s a truly unusual and privileged ride that takes place at Washington Dulles International Airport.

    Our Country came under attack on the morning of September 11, 2001 when four separate flights were hijacked resulting in all four aircrafts not reaching their intended destination. These were just some of the heinous acts of terrorism that took place that day.

    This commemorative ride allows us to show our patriotism by remembering the Heroes whose lives were taken on that fateful day. We hope you will take this one day of the year to join us for a meaningful, worthwhile and exciting ride as we Rattle the Runway at Dulles Airport.

    This year's event will take place on Sunday, September 14, 2008. Again this year, we will be staging in the rear of the National Air and Space Museum - Steven F. Udvar-Hazy Center for our opening ceremonies.

    After a police-escorted ride from Dulles Airport down to the Pentagon, closing ceremonies will take place in the South Parking Lot at the Pentagon off of Boundary Channel Drive so that we are able to visit the actual, long-awaited Pentagon Memorial as part of the closing ceremonies.

    Motorcycle staging at the Opening Ceremonies location at the National Air and Space Museum - Steven F. Udvar-Hazy Center will take place from 8:00am to 10:45am. The actual Opening Ceremonies will start at 9:00am.

    From VA State Route 28, exit at the Air and Space Museum Parkway to a right turn at GATE 317. Once on Dulles Airport grounds, follow Police directions to the staging area.

    In addition, our friends at Devil Dawg Custom Cycles will open early (6:00am) and offer Starbucks coffee and bagels. From there, a Police-escorted ride will leave at 8:00am for the airport staging area.

    This is an event open to all motorcyclists, and all makes and models of motorcycles are welcome. You do NOT need to register; just show up!

    Our event will take place on the Sunday after September 11th due to several logistical reasons:

    More people are able to attend during a weekend;

    The South Parking Lot of the Pentagon would not be available for our use during a weekday;

    The VA State Police would not allow for any road closures for our escorted ride during a weekday.

    I will most definetely be there! And I encourage all who have motorcycles in the Metro-DC area to come along!
