RESPONSE TO TERROR | IN BRIEF / NEW YORK

Firefighters Begin Bike Tour to Thank America

November 11, 2001|From Times Wire Reports

Five New York City firefighters who survived the call to the burning World Trade Center will hop on customized bicycles today to spend more than a month on the road for a "Thank You America" tour.

Starting at the World Trade Center ruins, they will pedal south to Georgia, then cut across the South to the West Coast, sleeping in firehouses along the way.

Two support vans will follow them on the 2,757-mile trek, which is not a fund-raising venture.

They come from the East Village firehouse of Engine Co. 9/Ladder Co. 33, which lost 10 men in the trade center collapse.
