Rogers has coordinated the ride, a benefit for the Children’s Hospital, for the past two years. Rogers said last year the group donated more than 100 teddy bears and nearly $5,000 to the hospital.

More than 80 motorcycles lined the streets in Bock before Saturday’s 11:15 a.m. departure time.

After their front-row view of the motorcycle ride, the teddy bears that adorned the participants’ bikes were donated for children receiving treatment at the Children’s Hospital.
