Can­Teen Spring Run suc­cess for the bik­ers

Hastings Leader - - News - BY BRENDA VOWDEN

This year’s Hawke’s Bay Har­ley MC Spring Run for Can­Teen raised around $8000 when more than 300 bikes and their pil­lion pas­sen­gers took to the road for a good cause a month ago.

Around 50 to 60 peo­ple came through the doors for a meet and greet the night be­fore the Spring Run revved into ac­tion.

Or­gan­iser Antony Huckle says it’s a good chance for friends old and new to catch up prior to the Satur­day ride.

“The meet and greet sets us up nicely for the bikes plus pil­lion pas­sen­gers who at­tend the Satur­day ride. A lot of peo­ple travel from out of town to make a week­end of it.”

The ride made its way through to the Waikare Sports Cen­tre in Pu­torino. Antony says the rid­ers had a fan­tas­tic lunch put on by the lo­cals be­fore mak­ing their way back to race­course. The weather played a ma­jor part in the suc­cess of the event, but the high­light was the do­na­tion to Can­Teen, Antony says.

“It was a fan­tas­tic day, beau­ti­ful weather and great do­na­tions to Can­Teen of $8000.”

The whole event was smooth sail­ing, with some rid­ers re­turn­ing each year.

“We’ve got rid­ers and mates who have at­tended ev­ery one.

“As this is the first big run of the spring/sum­mer, we get lots of rid­ers who keep com­ing back for more.”

Can­Teen Hawke’s Bay de­scribed the event as an amaz­ing day and thanked ev­ery­one who came along and helped make the day such a huge suc­cess.
