(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.

"I hope that people continue to educate their children and be a part of an active community," Blue Zones Project's Ellen Kehr said.

Before taking off, the riders released balloons in Sophie's honor.
