ALBANY, GA (WALB) -

A local motorcycle club held a memorial ride for a fallen rider. A member of the Rough Riders Motorcycle Club died on April 30th.

Various motorcycle clubs around South Georgia participated in an annual motorcycle ride to pay homage to fellow club riders that have passed over the year.

Families of the deceased and members from over ten motorcycle clubs showed to pay their respects. 

"We never want to forget their name. We never want to just, you know, act like it didn't happen and that we don't appreciate what he has done for our organization. We just really want to remember him,” said Rough Riders member Jonathan Wright.

The unnamed fallen rider was a marine stationed at the base in Albany.
