BATH, N.Y. -- About 200 motorcyclists showed up for the second annual Bucket Brigade at Bath Volunteer Fire Department in Steuben County on Saturday morning. The international club, known as the Red Knights, rode approximately 100 miles.
The group rode around the Finger Lakes to support the Wounded Warrior Project. The project supports wounded soldiers and their families in physical and emotional rehabilitation.
"They put everything they have out there, and they come back injured and wounded, and they really need our support. We need to show the appreciation we really have for our veterans, because they lay everything out on the line, and too many times they're forgotten after the big things are all over and are put aside," explained John Conrad, P.R. Officer Red Knights Chapter 32 NY. "This is to help, to show we're not letting them go, and we're not forgetting the cause and what they did for us."
The ride finished at the Hammondsport Fire Department with a barbecue cookoff.
