On your bike


Shepparton News - - NEWS - By Tara Whitsed

A con­tin­gency of mo­tor­bikes will be led by Cap­tain Amer­ica as they make their way from Shep­par­ton to Yarrawonga for the an­nual Road War­riors Char­ity Bike Fes­ti­val later this month.

Mo­tor­cy­cle rid­ers from the dis­trict are in­vited to join the ride rais­ing funds for KIDS Foun­da­tion which sup­ports chil­dren and adults liv­ing with se­ri­ous in­juries and burns.

Event co-or­gan­iser Gra­ham Hook said the ride would leave from Har­vey Nor­man in Shep­par­ton on the Goul­burn Val­ley Hwy and would be led by sev­eral su­per­heroes.

‘‘We came across (the su­per­heroes) at a char­ity event in Mel­bourne,’’ he said.

He said par­tic­i­pants could get the chance to ride along­side Cap­tain Amer­ica, Su­per­girl, Iron­man, Won­der­woman and Spi­der­man to the Fam­ily Fun Day Out at the Yarrawonga Show­grounds.

The event will fea­ture chil­dren’s ac­tiv­i­ties, more su­per­hero ac­tion, mo­tor­bike rides, trade stalls and live mu­sic.

Mr Hook said the mo­tor­bikes rid­den to the grounds could be en­tered in the Show and Shine for $7 with a $200 prize up for grabs. ● The ac­tion will heat up on Sat­ur­day, No­vem­ber 24, at Shep­par­ton’s Har­vey Nor­man store from 8 am with mo­tor­bikes de­part­ing at 9 am. The fam­ily fun day be­gins at 10 am and runs un­til 10 pm at Yarrawonga Show­grounds. For more in­for­ma­tion, visit the Road War­riors Fes­ti­val web­site or Face­book page.
