A rolling tribute to the 343 firefighters who perished on September 11th is on its way to ground zero Monday.

Six firefighters in southern California set off on a cross-country bike ride Sunday.

They will pedal across more than 3,300 miles through 14 states over the course of 31 days.

They will arrive in New York City on September 9, in time to take part in observances of the tenth anniversary of the terror attacks.
