ATLANTA (CBS46) -
Georgia motorcycle enthusiasts gathered Saturday for a ride they said was organized to honor law enforcement officers who died in the line of duty in 2016.
The ride, held Saturday, was organized to honor the nine law enforcement officers across the state who died.
Police escorted the riders through the street starting at the Atlanta Expo Center on Jonesboro Rd. and ending at the same place.
Video posted to social media shows a number of rides, escorted by police leaving the Expo Center Saturday afternoon. The event marks the 26th annual occasion and was followed by a lunch and a Fallen Heroes program to honor the families of those fallen officers.
