Thousands of bikers took to Tulsa streets Sunday to give Santa a helping hand this holiday season.

Crowds lined the streets to watch the bikers go by, toys strapped to every type of motorcycle imaginable. They started their parade style tour of Tulsa at Riverside Drive and ended at the Fair Meadows racetrack. They gave more than 8,000 new toys to the Salvation Army toy drive.

A group called ABATE, American Bikers Aimed Toward Education sponsors the ride that's been going on more than 20 years.
