When 3,500 motorcycles come through Woodland Park on their way to Cripple Creek, residents take notice. The bikers, part of the POW/MIA Recognition Salute to America Aug. 16, enjoyed a rousing welcome along Midland Avenue in Woodland Park.

The annual event grants the residents the opportunity to pay tribute to the soldiers who have fought America’s wars. The name of the ride reflects the riders’ dedication to keeping the captured or missing in the minds of the nation.
