A group of motorcycle riders took off from San Francisco on Monday on a quest to raise funds for breast cancer research.

Author Tamela Rich is participating in all 40 days of the journey, which ends in Wyoming.

Along the way, she's interviewing women who have survived the disease and plans to write a book about their ordeals.

The group encourages motorcycle riders across the country to form their own rides to raise money and awareness about breast cancer.
