Sunday was the Eighth Annual Bob Brenning Bike Ride for Peace.
The ride is put on by the group Men as Peacemakers. Executive Director Ed Heisler said that Brenning was a champion for the organization, as well as for peace and justice in the community.
About 100 bikes made the trip Sunday from Fitger's to the end of Park Point and back. Heisler said the ride raises funds for Men as Peacemakers.
"Men as Peacemakers is a very unique organization," he said. "It has a 17-year history of getting men off the sidelines and involved in making peace. And our focus is to do a variety of things that can get men and women together to help build a more peaceful community."
Heisler said the bike ride is family friendly and noncompetitive, filled with more conversation than racing.
