(ABC 6 News) -- More than a dozen motorcyclists hit the road Saturday to honor an 8-year-old Albert Lea girl who was killed while riding her bike last year.

Riders went on an 110-mile trek through Southeastern Minnesota to raise money for the Blue Zones Project's initiative to educate kids on bicycle safety.
