Bik­ers ride for char­ity

Isis Town and Country - - News -

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.
