Heels & Wheels motorcycle ride sponsored by the Ventura HOG Chapter Ladies of Harley.

Close to 200 mostly female motorcycle riders in pink took to the streets Sunday morning to participate in a local ride to support and raise funds for breast cancer awareness and screenings.

Dressed in pink T-shirts, ribbons, fairy wings and even tutus, the group began their hour and a half ride at Ventura Harley-Davidson in Camarillo for the 11th annual Heels & Wheels motorcycle ride sponsored by the Ventura HOG Chapter Ladies of Harley.
