Motorcyclists Who 'Swarmed' West Side Highway Started Their Ride in Brooklyn

The large group of motorcyclists who took over the West Side Highway on Sunday, resulting in a nasty incident with the driver of an SUV and the tragic injury of a cyclist, started their "swarm" in Brooklyn on the approach to the Brooklyn Bridge.

This photo, taken at 1:24 p.m., shows the group massing near a Jehovah's Witness plant at the foot of the bridge. Members of the group can be seen chatting with police officers stationed for security at the entrance there. (Click to enlarge.)

About 15 minutes after this photo was shot, McBrooklyn asked a traffic officer a block from this area why there were so many motorcyclists. "Just out for a ride," he said.
