The 44th annual Ride for Sight is back and ready to roll this Saturday July 9.

And for the first time High River will be the final destination for the motorcyclists fundraiser.

The ride has been around since 1979 and their goal is still the same, to fight blindness.

It all started because of a fellow motorcyclist losing his eyesight and they formed a group to fight back against blindness.

Ride for Sight has raised over $26 million for Fighting Blindness Canada - the leading funder of vision research in Canada.

The poker run motorcycle rally heads out on the highway from the New Brighton Athletic Park in Calgary at 11:00 a.m. 

The tour of the foothills will see the riders making their way to the Hard Knox Brewery in Black Diamond for their first stop.

They will then make their way down through the foothills on Highway 22, the Cowboy Trail stopping at Sheep River Falls in Kananaskis Country.

Keep you're eyes peeled for the riders making their way then to Aldersyde with the final stop at Spitzee Post and Grill in High River.

Riders are expected to arrive sometime around 4:00 p.m. in High River.
