More than 100 Lab motorcycle riders took to the streets Thursday in honor of Veterans Day during Lab Ride 7. Organized by the Lawrence Livermore Laboratory Armed Forces Veterans Association (LLLAFVA), this is the seventh year riders have participated to support charitable organizations. 

Riders donated $2,280 for the Davis Street Family Resource Center and East Bay Stand Down 2012, the LLLAFVA pet project for several years. All riders received a pin for participating.

Employees staged at Outer Loop Road, exited the East Gate and rode to Site 300. Riders were treated to a barbecue lunch at Site 300 courtesy of the Alameda County Firefighters Association.

The ride is organized by Alameda County Firefighters Association and the Lawrence Livermore Lab Armed Forces Veterans Association.
