4th annual 'Bikers at Capitol' event starts with procession of motorcyclists through Denver

DENVER - Hundreds of motorcyclists plan to participate in the 4th annual "Bikers at Capitol" event Monday.

The event begins at 10:30 a.m. with a motorcycle procession that starts at the VFW on Platte River Drive. The bikers will ride up Santa Fe Ave. to 14th St. and then take Lincoln Ave. to the State Capitol.

Hundreds of bikers are expected to participate - including independent motorcyclists from across the state, members of the Coalition of Independent Riders (COIR), representatives from each of the 48 motorcycle clubs that make up the Colorado Confederation of Clubs and the Patriot Guard Riders.

Motorcyclists will tour the Capitol, observe our legislators at work and meet face to face with their respective legislature representatives. Organizers say the event is an opportunity to show lawmakers that motorcyclists counts and vote.

The US Defenders and COIR is an organization that stands for the rights and freedoms of "motorcyclists and Americans," according to Danny Barton, State Commander of the US Defenders.
