Bikes hit the road for Griffith Toy Run

BANNA Avenue was flooded with bikies on Saturday morning but it was all for a good cause.

The annual Griffith Toy Run now in its 15th year proved a huge success with about 150 bikers and scooter riders hitting the road to raise money for Can Assist.

More than 100 toys have now been distributed by St Vincent de Paul to families in need just in time for Christmas and almost $3000 was raised for Can Assist.

Toy run founder Locky Miller said everyone had a "great day".

"We had about 150 bikes on the street ride, 80 on the road ride and 20 on the dirt bike ride," Mr Miller said.

"The dirt bike riders came back filthy dirty and grinning from ear to ear, they had a great time.

"The road bike riders went out through Darlington Point, stopped in at the Yanco Hotel for refreshments, then back through Murrami for lunch at the Yenda Hotel."

Mr Miller said both rides went smoothly.

"I have to say a big thanks to the Griffith Highway Patrol, they were excellent, and also the people at the Yanco and Yenda hotels," Mr Miller said.

"We had a fantastic day with a really good result."

Mr Miller said everyone was all set for next year, though he had plans to move the ride forward into November to work around the busy harvest time.
