FORT WAYNE, Ind. (www.incnow.tv) – Look twice, save a life—that's the message a large group of motorcyclists were sending today as they rode 50 miles for the 24th Annual Mayor's Ride.
The American Bikers Aimed Toward Education Indiana (ABATE) is a not-for-profit organization that promotes safety and education about motorcycles.
Sunday, at least 1,000 motorcyclists gathered at the K-Mart on S. Anthony and rode 50 mi. to downtown Decatur.
Regional director Teresa Bodle says this ride is all about raising awareness.
"To let everybody know that motorcycles are out there,” said Bodle. “May is motorcycle awareness month so we always do this the week after, just more convenient, we let everybody know there's motorcycles out there, look twice save a life."
A festive atmosphere greeted the riders as they rode into Decatur, where there were food tents, bands, and vendors.
