(ABC 6 News)-- A group of motorcyclists took to the road for a good cause today.

About 50 bikers spent the afternoon on the "Ride for Wounded Warriors" in Austin.

The annual ride raises money for wounded and disabled veterans from surrounding area.

They made it all around Southern Minnesota and ended their day at Torge's Live.

A raffle and door prizes helped raise money for the cause.

The organizer of the event, Steven Tieskoetter says, "they paid a heck of a price for our freedom to give us a chance to do what we're doing today and I think it's just a little bitty part that we're doing to give them something back."

If you're interested in the ride, the group plans to have another run next year.
