Bikers for Babies

Every September the March of Dimes holds a ride called "Bikers for Babies".The top March of Dimes motorcycle ride in the nation and largest charity run in the Midwest . Proceeds support the March of Dimes mission to improve the health of babies by preventing birth defects, premature birth and infant mortality. This year I made it a point to sit and watch all the Bikers in the March of Dimes "Bikers for Babies" ride.

Every September I catch the tale end of the ride as we are getting out of church. But this year I made it a point to miss church (I think God will understand) and watch the ride. It was so awe-inspiring to see 6,000-8,000 (yes there were this many) motorcycle riders as far as the eye could see. They waved at my 2 year old son, honked their horns, gave peace signs and my favorite rock-on fingers. This went on for 2 hours straight. I loved seeing all the different types of bikes and different colors. It sent chills up my spine to watch so many bikers supporting a wonderful cause.

Oh I love these pictures! I used to be one of those bikers! I didn't do this run (we have one similar in MN) but I've been on quite a few runs! They are so awesome! It's such a feeling to come look down a hill and see the swarm of bikes ahead of you and to look in your rearview mirror and see the flood of lights behind you.

Runs are awesome! They sound cool too!

Love love love the pics!

We got to see all of the bikers while we were stopping by our house/heading to the airport on Sunday. What a sight!! It's pretty cool that many people were out to support March of Dimes :)

Katie, it was pretty cool to see. We stopped in Eudora by the storage facility. It was non stop for 2 hours. Sam loved it.

Wow Erin! You got some amazing pictures of those bikers. I can't imagine what it was like to see that many in a row. I agree, God will forgive you...afterall it was for a good cause. Thanks for stopping by today...and your KIND words.
P.S. I am a 6th grade teacher!
