Hundreds of motorcyclists were undeterred by rain Saturday as they rode from the Far West Side to the lakefront in honor of police officers hurt or killed in the line of duty.The American Knights Motorcycle Club of Chicago made their way to Gold Star Families Park for a brief ceremony.

Among the speakers was retired Chicago police Officer Thomas Wortham Sr., whose son, Thomas Jr., was killed earlier this year.

"This is a wonderful sight. I'm pleased to be here, and I know my son is looking down smiling," Wortham said.
