UTICA- Mayor Rob Palmieri along with dozens of bicyclists took a 10-mile bike ride through Utica.
This is the second year for the "Mayor's Ride".
The event is all about getting more exercise while promoting bicycling.
Mayor Palimieri said he started this event last year to raise money for a good cause.
"We will be able to use the funding for this for Mariannes Kitchen and the recipients from that will be exactly what we look for," said Mayor Palmieri. "It's a wellness opportunity to get out there and do a little excercise, but more importantly help some of the agencies out there that quite frankly need our help."
Proceeds from the event will also benefit Utica Bike Rescue.
