‘Back the Blue’ rally expected to draw big crowd to Orleans today
HOLLEY – A “Back the Blue” ride in support of law enforcement is expected to draw a big crowd to Orleans County today.
Just how big – 500 people to 5,000 – won’t be known until the ride starts at noon. Motorcyclists will go first, followed by muscle/classic cars, cars and pickup trucks, and then truckers with rigs.
They will begin gathering at 10:30 a.m. on private property owned by David Paul at 3823 County Line Rd. in Murray.
The group will then head to Route 31 and pass through the Public Square in Holley, and then on to Albion and Medina.
The route then goes to Route 63, heading north to Route 104, and then east back to Monroe-Orleans County Line Road.
Organizers say the 52-mile ride is intended to be a rally to support law enforcement, firefighters, EMS, hospital workers and U.S. military. Participants are urged to bring American flags, and decorate motorcycles, Jeeps, cars and trucks.
