Action News could be seen on the Ben Franklin Bridge this morning as the riders headed out to Atlantic City for the 35th Annual Ben to the Shore Bike Tour.
The entire route is a 65 mile ride.
Cyclists also had the option of taking a shorter 30-mile ride from Hammonton, New Jersey, making the trip a little easier.
Former Philadelphia Deputy Police Commissioner Joe Sullivan helps run this charity along with the Families Behind the Badge Children’s Foundation.
The Ben to the Shore is on track to raise over a million dollars this year.
Money raised goes to the Families Behind the Badge Children’s Foundation, which benefits families of fallen first responders and children’s charities.
Some of the drivers include Philadelphia Police Officer Arcenio Perez, who was shot and injured on duty after responding to a shooting at Jefferson Hospital last October.
A group of Pennsylvania State Troopers are also riding in honor of fallen officers Martin Mack III and Branden Sisca, who died after being hit by a drunk driver in March this year.
