ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) - As many as 30,000 motorcyclists are expected to hit the scenic drives along the Mississippi River and St. Croix River for the annual Fall Flood Run, and state officials are urging that riders and motorists use caution and stay safe.

The Fall Flood Run is Saturday.

Minnesota Department of Public Safety officials are asking riders to keep themselves, their passengers and others safe when on the road.

And motorists are asked to watch for motorcycles and give riders room.

Rider deaths have already surpassed the total number of motorcycle deaths in 2014. According to preliminary reports, 51 motorcyclists have died on Minnesota roads this year compared to 46 in all of 2014.
