If you are planning to drive to Pro Player Stadium to watch the Dolphins battle the Bills or even making a run out to grandma's this morning, you might want to take steps to avoid 30,000 bikers bearing presents.

A 25-mile long procession -- led by Broward County Sheriff Ken Jenne, Aerosmith's Steven Tyler, Bon Jovi's Richie Sambora and Vince Neil from Motley Crue -- is departing Pompano Harness Track around 10 a.m. and is expect to arrive at Markham Park in Sunrise three hours later. There, live music and food will welcome the bikers, where about 70,000 people are expected to attend.

The event is organized by the South Florida Presidents Council, the largest motorcycle club in Florida.

Road closures start shortly before 10 a.m. when the motorcycles leave the Pompano Harness Park and make their way to Atlantic Boulevard. From there, they'll head east to the southbound lanes of Interstate 95. Running about 25 mph, the motorcycles will head south on I-95 to westbound Interstate 595, exiting at Southwest 136th Avenue and then up State Road 84 to Markham Park.

The following roads will be closed from approximately 9:45 a.m. to 1 p.m. on Sunday: Atlantic Boulevard eastbound from Powerline Road to I-95, I-95 southbound from Atlantic Boulevard to westbound I-595, and westbound I-595 to SW 136th Avenue.

Alternates? Try Florida's Turnpike or the Sawgrass Expressway for north/south routes. Eastbound and westbound travelers may want to use Sample, Copans, or Cypress Creek roads.
