Senior citizens in Rapid City received a loud delivery Friday morning, and it wasn't a knock on their door.
With coolers strapped to the backs of their bikes, 25 motorcyclists' took off with ready-to-eat-meals for the elderly.
In this first Meals on Motorcycles ride, volunteers carried four containers of tater tot casseroles to separate homes.
This is the first meal delivery of its kind by the Meals on Wheels program, which provides senior citizens with homemade cooking everyday.
Community Resource Coordinator Marcia Mayer says it's a great way to demonstrate the work of Black Hills area bikers.
"Because we have the Sturgis Rally I just figured it would be a nice way to show that we have lots of bikers in our community that do good for our seniors," said Mayer.
Motorcyclists Jeff Reid is one of those bikers and he says it's less about what he's doing but more about helping those who are unable to get meals themselves.

Mayer says eight rollerbladers also participated in the ride to help senior citizens.
