ALBANY, GA (WALB) -

Dozens of cyclists showed up downtown Friday night for the monthly Flint River Roll through Albany. The Pecan City Pedalers hosted the event in an effort to promote cycling.

City leaders hope to promote healthier lifestyles, and the biking initiative was one way they were doing that.

Around 70 cyclists showed up for the first ride in March.

Organizers hope the participation continues to grow. 

"We want to have more cyclists on the road. We want motorists to be aware of cyclists and that's kind of what we're doing. Cycling is fun so that's why we really wanted to do this ride," said organizer Lonnie Wormley.

If you missed them that time around, you can join next time by showing up at the Welcome Center downtown just before 6:30 p.m. on Friday, July 1.
