EUGENE, Ore. --Hundreds of bicyclists rode through Eugene in the 21st annual Blackberry Bramble hosted by Greater Eugene Area Riders.

GEARS is a non profit whose purpose is to promote and encourage biking as a means of transportation.
The ride is a yearly tradition and this year riders could explore five different routes that took them all over the city

Organizer Karen Goodwin says they look forward to this ride every year.

"It really just is a beautiful scenic ride everywhere you go so we like to show it off and get people out and being together. Riding together makes people feel more powerful."

She says the ride attracted over 350 people this year.

She also said huge amounts of people come out whenever there is good weather and that they're already looking forward to next year.
