In light of the widespread cancellations of Veterans Day parades and other celebrations across the state due to health safety concerns, the American Legion Riders (ALR) District 9 of Contra Costa County will co-host a motorcycle run with ALR District 10 of Alameda County through several downtown areas across their respective districts on Wednesday.

Organizers state that the purpose of this run is to honor and celebrate the American veterans across the two counties without inviting or incurring large public gatherings. An undetermined number of motorcycles shall proceed at normal traffic speeds flying American flags past various veterans buildings and memorial sites and through downtown regions along a predetermined route. It is not anticipated that riders will stop to interact with the public at any point, with the exception of a meal stop yet to be determined.

The tentative course and schedule as of the time of this release is as follows:
