Motorcycle riders raise their arms Saturday afternoon to show the pink wristbands they were wearing for the “School Dude Riders” benefit for the family of the late Amber Lucchiani. Lucchiani was killed in a car accident July 12, leaving behind a husband and two young children. She was a sixth-grade teacher at Robert E. Aylor Middle School in Frederick County.

Antonio Lucchiani, widower of Amber Lucchiani, addresses the crowd before the start of the benefit ride. “It’s just been phenomenal how this community comes together to help my family,” he said. “I know Amber is looking down here smiling.”
Bikers leave Robert E. Aylor Middle School near Stephens City at the start of the ride. Amber Lucchiani taught social studies at the school. About 40 bikers took part in the event, which ended with a cookout at the Frederick County Public Schools’ Building and Grounds Department on Woodbine Road in Clear Brook.
