TUSCUMBIA — Breaking the cycle of abuse and domestic violence is the message that the Colbert Domestic Violence Response Coalition is trying to get across Saturday during a motorcycle ride.
“This is a chance to promote the efforts to stop domestic violence and break the cycle of abuse,” said Edna Burgess, one of the organizers for the event.

The fee is $20 for each rider.
Motorcycles will leave the courthouse, travel to U.S. 72 then to County Line Road, to River Road, then to Wilson Dam Road and back to Sixth Street, ending in Spring Park.
Burgess said there will be food and entertainment for the riders at the park.
The event is scheduled to end by 3 p.m.
