Participants in the eighth annual Badlands Motorcycle Awareness and Teddy Bear Run are considering it a success.
Over 30 riders joined the ride from Drumheller to Three Hills and back on June 3.
"It's actually to make other drivers aware that the motorcycles are back on the road again," stated organizer Connie Tremblay. "They're not used to having us on the roads so we want to make sure they know that we're back out there and to watch out for us because we easily hide in their blind spots."
Participants in the run also brought teddy bears along to donate to the Drumheller Health Centre. The bears are given to kids who have experienced trauma in their life.
"They take the teddies at the hospital and they distribute them through the fire department, the police station, that sort of thing," Tremblay explained. "The sick children will get them and other times they will go to Victim Services and so those children will get them.
Over 300 teddies were donated as part of the event. 
Tremblay says they will be delivering another gift pack to the hospital in the coming weeks.
