More than 1,000 bikers from around the Midwest revved their engines for fun in Cavalier.

John Jensen organized the Motorcycle Ride. He organized it 15 years ago to give bikers a chance to come together. The event has a 59 mile ride, games, prizes and a burn-out contest. Jensen is proud of the event's success.

After starting with 60 bikers, it has grown to nearly 1500.

"Last night we had people in town, we opened our park for the first time camping, with people staying at our motel, restaurants, bars, gas stations. It's a good economic boost for the town,” race organizer John Jensen said.
