Local bikers gathered Sunday afternoon at River Walk Park for a ride. Where they were headed was a surprise.
The group of nearly 100 riders rode to the house of Ben Martinez, a Bakersfield teen who suffers from alveolar rhabdomyosarcoma, an aggressive cancer that usually starts in the torso, arms and legs.
The bikers provided Ben with gifts, including a personalized vest with the biker name Giant Slayer.
They also took Ben for a ride around Bakersfield and, after the ride, Ben reflected on being leader of a motorcycle club.
