Thousands will ride to honor 7 bikers killed in crash


CONCORD, N.H. (AP) – Thousands of motorcyclists are expected to take to New Hampshire roadways to honor seven bikers killed in a collision with a pickup truck last month.

Organizers of the Ride For the Fallen 7 say the event scheduled Saturday started out as a way for some riders to remember the bikers with a ride to the crash site in Randolph. But word spread, and now there’s expected to be possibly 5,000 riders making the 90-mile (145-kilometer) trip from a Laconia bar to Randolph. A memorial service will be held at a motel where the bikers stayed.

The bikers were killed last month when a pickup truck hauling a flatbed trailer crashed into the group. The pickup driver, 23-year-old Volodymyr Zhukovskyy, pleaded not guilty to negligent homicide and remains behind bars.
