Riding and rolling for fallen officer

Biker's revved up their engines and got the dice rolling Saturday with their third annual, "Dice-Ride".
The ride was originally established in honor of fallen Dougherty County Police officer, Cliff Rouse, who was killed in the line of duty.
Former Dougherty County Police Chief Don Cheek organized the event, and says this is the first year they've actually had sunshine and clear skies to accompany them on the ride.
But for those of you that aren't so biker savvy, chief cheek explained exactly what a "Dice-Ride," is.
"It's almost like yahtzee on wheels, instead of doing poker hands we roll 5-dice at each stop and you total up the number. The best hand and the worst hand both get a cut of the pot," said Cheek.
Last year the ride raised $6,500 dollars in the pouring rain, and added they very well might double that number this year.
