The event will begin at 9:30 AM and will also feature appearances by stage and screen star Matthew Modine, “The Sopranos” actor Tony Sirico, and former New York Yankee Bernie Williams, who will perform the national anthem. The NYPD marching band will “send off” the riders, who will travel from Macy’s through Central Park and along the West Side Highway, ending in Brooklyn.
Soldier Ride, a program of Wounded Warrior Project, focuses on providing rehabilitation opportunities to recently wounded soldiers and raising awareness of their situation.
