Pineywoods Purgatory

Cyclists from all over Texas are in Lufkin this weekend for a good cause. Hundreds of bike riders gathered at the start line Saturday morning. They are in town for the 15th annual Pineywoods Purgatory.

Organizers say the event is a boost to Lufkin's economy, but most of all it benefits  the Susan Mathis Cancer Center.

The Purgatory was hosted by the Lufkin Host Lions Club.
