JOHNSON CITY — Hundreds of bikers roared across Northeast Tennessee Sunday, the 10th anniversary of 9/11, while following a hearse carrying a flag-draped coffin representing the nearly 3,000 people who died that day.


The 9/11 memorial Freedom Ride was arranged in part by Tetrick Funeral Services and involved the local chapter of Rolling Thunder, Johnson City firefighters, Johnson City police, Washington County emergency responders and Washington County sheriff’s deputies.


“When we started arranging this we thought we’d be successful if we had 50 riders,” said Richard Tetrick as he watched probably between 300 and 400 bikers pull out of the 3001 Peoples St. location.
