Metro bikers are pushing for peace.

Member of a local motorcycle club said they're tired of youth violence so they organized a demonstration. The bikers normally spend their Sunday afternoons riding around town, but this week they walked and pushed their bike.

"We believe it takes a village to raise a child and we want to bring a village back and bring the community back together," Dena Owens said.

With a police escort leading the way the about 40 bikers pushed their way through northeast Oklahoma City.

"If we can show these little youngsters or whatever there's something much more than violence going on," Biker Nino Williams said.
