The Sikh Riders of America held their fourth annual motorcycle ride Saturday morning. 

The day started at the Harley Davidson store off of Merle Haggard Drive where the Sikh riders handed out free breakfast burritos, soda, coffee and water.

From there they traveled from Oildale to Hart Park where they held a raffle, auction and gave riders lunch from a local Indian restaurant. 

"We have members traveling from across the country and we have motorcycle groups supporting us and it's a really proud moment," said Gurinder Singh the president of the Sikh Riders of America.

One hundred percent of the proceeds from the ride are going to local charities including Kern County 999 foundation, armed forces support ride and the Kern County Law Enforcement Association as well as to a couple families who have a loved one battling cancer.
