A group of firefighters from Los Angeles is biking from the West Coast to New York City, planning to arrive in time for the Sept. 11 anniversary.

The firefighters are trying to raise money for two charities. They arrived in D.C. Monday afternoon and are being escorted by the Arlington Fire Department to the Pentagon Memorial.
