Cyclists bike in Avila for ALS research

Hundreds of cyclists gathered on the Central Coast Saturday to bike for a good cause.

The ALS Central Coast Charity Ride kicked off Saturday morning in Avila Beach.

More than 150 cyclists registered for the race. They competed in a 100 mile race, 100 kilometer race, or Fun Race.

The event raises money to fight ALS, also known as Lou Gehrig's Disease.

Locals with ALS were also invited to the event.

"There are many people that are in the community locally in the tri-counties area that do have ALS, so it's a wonderful thing to be able to mix and mingle with those folks," said Audia Reggie, the Executive Director of the local ALS research organization.
