A Memorial Day motorcycle ride in North Dakota, organized by the Viet Nam Vets Legacy Vets Motorcycle Club still will take place despite the coronavirus pandemic, organizer Butch Olson said.
That time instead of proceeding into the cemetery to park and view the ceremony, riders will continue past the cemetery on State Highway 1806 to Cannon Ball, then to Solen, Breien and St. Anthony and onto Mandan.
More than 600 motorcycles participated in the 2019 Memorial Day ride, Olson said. Bismarck and Mandan police usually escort the riders through town.
Riders will leave The Shop-Your Motorcycle Connection at 131 Airport Road in Bismarck at 11 a.m. Olson said he will close the shop and ask riders to remain by their motorcycles when arriving, to adhere to social distancing.
