EUGENE, Ore. -- Dozens of mothers, neighbors and families hopped on their bikes at Owen Rose Garden Sunday for an annual Mother's Day ride put on by CycloFemme Eugene/Springfield.

"It's a bike ride celebrating women on wheels and part of the reason we host in Eugene/Springfield is to really showcase that women do ride and to showcase our younger generation that they can ride too," said ride coordinator Kelsey Moore. 

The ride led bikers around six miles of Eugene's bike paths and city streets.

They also met up with riders from Springfield at Day Island Park in Springfield to celebrate the day together.

"It's a fantastic time to get people out on the streets practicing riding and have a really fun time celebrating together," said Moore. 

This year's theme was "Bike, Bling, and Flowers."

A bike beautification station was set up at the beginning of the course for riders to use for the day.

The event happens every year as a part of the international CycloFemme organization.
