FORT GORDON, Ga. --- About 60 bicycle riders came out for the Tour de Fort at Fort Gordon today. This is the sixth year for the ride and bikers competed for a cash prize.

Each loop was 14 miles long and the whole ride was around 104 miles.

"It's very tough. That's why a lot of people will come out here and think Georgia's flat, Augusta, GA is flat. And we've had people have to pull out not being able to finish because of the amount of climbing out here," said Brett Ardrey.

Bikers came from all over Georgia and South Carolina to participate.
