Warriors ride for tsunami
ALMOST 200 motorcycles took part in the 14th annual Odin's Warriors Motorcycle Club Tweed Valley ride from the South Tweed Tavern on Saturday.
The ride, which attracted two riders from the United States and others from interstate, continues to grow in popularity, according to Odin's spokesman "Irish".
More than $1000 was raised for the Asian tsunami appeal, from the raffle of a custom chopper bike worth $15,000.
"Irish" said the five-hour ride, held this year in "perfect weather" via Uki and Murwillumbah and back to the tavern, was one of the most picturesque in Australia.
"It was well worth the effort for the people who rode some distance to get here," he said.
"We'd like to thank all riders who took part, for showing courteous behaviour."
"Irish" said the annual motorcycle ride had donated to many worthy charities over the years, including Amnesty International and local Volunteer Marine Res- cue groups.
