Rolling Thunder's last ride through Washington

A motorcycle rider with American flag fluttering passes crowds during the 32nd Annual Rolling Thunder "Ride for Freedom" during Memorial Day weekend to support veterans and call attention to POWs and MIAs, in Washington, May 26, 2019. The Rolling Thunder motorcycles that descend on Washington, D.C. every Memorial Day weekend made their final ride on Sunday, ending a three decades-old tradition that was initially meant to serve to pay tribute to fallen and missing-in-action soldiers.

USMC Staff Sgt. Tim Chambers (ret.) salutes motorcycle riders as they pass by. For years, the group has become synonymous with the annual Memorial Day celebration in the nation's capital, where thousands of motorcycles meet in the Pentagon parking lot and continue their ride across the Memorial Bridge toward the National Mall. Late last year, the group announced it would be making this May its final ride, citing a lack of cooperation by law enforcement and rising costs of permits.

A motorcycle rider and passenger cheer as they pass crowds. In an interview with Reuters TV, Muller said that while this will be the final ride, the event will also mark the beginning of a new chapter. "We're not really talking about a legacy here because we're not going away. We're just spreading out and we hope to get stronger. That's what our idea is on this, so coast to coast -- North, South, Midwest," Muller said.
