Bikers Ride For a Good Cause

Posted: Updated:

Traffic on the strip in Mandan comes to a halt as a group of bikers take a road trip for a good cause.

The 2nd Annual Harleywood Night bike run was held at the Mandan Roughrider bike club.

Over 100 motorcyclists are riding across the state to raise money for the Bismarck Cancer Center.

Their trip today covers over 150 miles.

Along the way, they tour towns like New Salem, Washburn and Wilton before returning to Mandan where they will hold a live auction tonight.

The first rider to leave the lot was Mike Markwed who started this event in honor of his wife.

"My wife is a cancer survivor, she had hotchkins lymphoma, she was diagnosed 5 years ago and she's been cancer-free for 4 and a half years now. It's great to see everybody come together to be able to enjoy the nice weather that we're having, and get together and be with friends and enjoy the ride," Mike Markwed said.

Last year, this event raised over 7,000 dollars but this year, they expect to double that amount.
