Coastal riders hit the highway
DOZENS of local families have found the winter a little more comfortable thanks to the generosity of a cavalcade of motorbike riders.
Coastal Riders mustered hundreds of people for the fourth annual Coastal Riders Annual Winter Charity Ride on Sunday.
Event organiser Tony Deane, who founded the group on Facebook, said bike lovers of all persuasions had united by the cause of the winter ride, which supports the city's homeless and women who are victims of domestic violence.
"Going off statistics there are some 400 homeless in the Coffs Harbour region, and our event also helps women escaping domestic violence, which I think are two of the most important charity causes in our community," he said.
The charity ride commenced on the Pacific Highway (Old Bunnings), traversing the region's countryside before returning to Coffs Harbour.
