America's Ride is a twelve-day, coast-to-coast motorcycle and community fundraising event that raises money for the World Trade Center Miracles Foundation. Leaving Los Angeles, California on August 31, 2003, the 2nd annual ride travels across the country to Shanksville, PA and Washington D.C., ending at Ground Zero, New York on September 11 to assist those who were affected by the terrorist attacks.

America's Ride is a unique, patriotic, cross-country motorcycle event, benefiting the World Trade Center Miracles Foundation. The mission of the foundation is to assist 9/11 families and those “who have fallen through the cracks”. Those currently being assisted include: children and spouses of the deceased, injured rescue workers and firemen, The New York Port Authority Police Benevolent Association, September Space, lower income families and our nation's military personnel. The foundation also prepares for the future by providing funds in the event of another terrorist attack.

Last year's coast-to-coast America's Ride was an amazing experience for the motorcycle enthusiasts who participated and for all the many communities who came out in support of the riders' behalf. Featured on Good Morning America, CNN, the Los Angeles times and all local media resources along the route, America's Ride was a patriotic showing of Americans supporting their fellow countrymen. The ride traveled 3,751 miles, stopping at 11 host cities and held memorial services at the Stonycreek School in Shanksville, PA, on the Capital grounds in Washington, D.C., and at Ground Zero in New York City, in an effort to heal and unify our country from the tragic events of 9/11/2001.
