Local motorcycle riders took to the open road Sunday afternoon, for a good time and a good cause.
It's called the Blue Ridge 100 - a hundred miles, and at least a hundred bikers.
This year's ride attracted more than 150 participants, and the proceeds go to a Rockingham County firefighter who recently lost an infant child, and can't afford the medical bills.
"I just enjoy it, and the fact that I get to see all these people and all these kinds of bikes, I just think it's a wonderful opportunity to get together," said organizer Tom Moffett, president of the Blue Ridge Red Riders.
"And the fact that we can help somebody who needs it, that's just icing on the cake."
This was the third year for the Blue Ridge 100. The bikers left for their journey just after 12:30 Sunday afternoon.
The post-ride festivities continued until 11 p.m.
