Bikers ride for charity
THE VLAD laws may have made life slightly more difficult but nothing was going to stop the Independent Bike Riders Association from their spina bifida and SES fundraiser.
The 76-strong group rode from Maryborough to Cordalba on Saturday, and stopped by Biggenden, Howard and Bucca in the first major fundraiser for the year.
Member Michael Tucker said it was one of four major rides the group.
When asked how the VLAD laws affected the group, Mr Tucker said it was mainly a matter of public perception.
“We’ve got bus drivers, council workers, Department of Corrections personnel, care workers and teachers,” he said.
“Most are professional people but people can’t tell when we’re riding.”
It capped a massive weekend for Cordalba Hotel’s Anthony Murphy, who is celebrating the overwhelming success of the Friday night trivia.
The trivia night attracted about 50 people.
