IT was a roaring success as bikers took to Suffolk's roads to raise money for charity.
The Fenlanders, who are part of the Harley Davison Owners Group, rode from Newmarket to Martlesham on Sunday on behalf of Great Ormond Street Children's Hospital.
Peter Lough, of Rushmere St Andrew, is the regional road captain for the Ipswich and East Suffolk riders.
He said: "We took the pretty route and we always get a good reaction. People like to look at the bikes and it is something different to look at on the roads.

"One of the ladies in the group, Caroline Melville, had a friend whose son had bone cancer. We were going to take him out in the sidecar but sadly he died before we could. So instead we thought we would raise some money.
"It was a very successful day and we have raised over £200 for them," he said.
