PEORIA (WEEK) --- A swap meet was held at the Peoria Expo Gardens Sunday for bikers and motorcycle enthusiasts.

The event was hosted by A Brotherhood Aimed Toward Education - a group focused on motorcycle safety and fighting for equal rights on the roads.

Vendors were in attendance selling bike parts, accessories and even new custom paint jobs. There was also a raffle to win a brand new Harley-Davidson bike.

State coordinator Ryan Hubbard says next month is Motorcycle Safety Awareness Month, and they hope to spread a message of safety with Saturday's event.

"What we want to ensure is that as a motorcyclist, (when) we go out and we ride, we can make it home safe at night to our families - just like anyone in their car wants to do the same thing," Hubbard said. "We want to ensure that everybody knows what to be looking for and what to be aware of when they are around a motorcycle when they are out in their cars."

Hubbard says they had visitors from as far as Indiana come out to the event today.

He says the group will return to the Peoria Expo Gardens in late October for another swap meet similar to Saturday's.
