Bikers ride to raise heroin awareness

Bikers from across Long Island and Queens are raising awareness about the heroin epidemic.



The Bikers Against Heroin Ride took place Sunday in Deer Park.



Many of the bikers have been affected by heroin or have lost loved ones to the drug.



Reports show that Suffolk County has had more heroin deaths than any other county in New York.



Money raised from today's ride will benefit the Long Island Recovery Association.
