People all across the country have been doing what they can to show their support of freedom following last months terrorist attacks.

This weekend... bikers took their turn in Tulsa.

More than four-thousand bikers from across Oklahoma sported American flags and rode around town.

Each biker raised donations to support the police and firefighters who worked to save lives during the attack at the World Trade Center.

Bruce Mathis, Rider: "All these guys are here for the freedom ride, everybody's flying their flags and everything, it's really great."

Larry Wofford, Biker: "that's what's neat about this ride, the fact that for the first time in a long time, all riders come together... all riders enjoy the same sport... and they enjoy making a contribution."

Tulsa Mayor Savage got in on the action by declaring it Tulsa Freedom Ride Day.
