"We had about 60 people come out to this ride because they want to promote motorcycling," said Bobby Russell, a salesman for Street and Trail in Evans. "We sponsor these bike rides every couple of months and they are always very popular."
In addition to their love of riding, many motorcyclists came to help support the Medical College of Georgia's Children's Medical Center.
"The holidays are right around the corner and there are going to be a lot of kids and their families that aren't going to be able to make it home for the holidays," said Russell. "I don't know how many toys we collected, but there was a big box full of them."
The toys will be used as presents for children at MCG Children's Medical Center.
The event also featured a sport bike show. The sport bike show is a regular event at the Sno-Cap in North Augusta. However, the final show of the year was canceled last week because of inclement weather.
Since Street and Trail was sponsoring the ride, motorcyclists took the opportunity to show off their sports bikes and ride them.
Winners were chosen in the stock and extreme classes.
