Email News Alerts

More than 500 people took to the roads Sunday on motorcycles for the seventh annual Ride for the Troops and many more lined the route to support the riders.


Participants ride to support the troops and their families from the area.

"It's just a good cause to put money toward the troops," said Randy Fitzgerald of Bemidji. "I ride with the Blue Knights, a local law enforcement group."

He has participated each year and will continue to ride, he said.
