MOTORBIKE lovers from across the region are set to hit the road in support of local bushfire victims.
On January 12, a group of die-hard riders will be taking to the open road and raising funds for families who have lost everything in the recent fires.
Starting at The Pub, the Tamworth Bushfire Charity Run will allow bikes of all sizes and cars to take part in a three-hour tour of the region before returning to the hotel for a show and shine expo.
The charity run is set to take in villages such as Dungowan and Kootingal as well as the greater Tamworth area.
The Pub Group's Scott Langley said the charity run would be in a similar vein to the The Pub's annual Pink Ribbon Ride.
"It all started over a couple of beers between some patrons and local motorcycle owners, who wanted to do something for the bushfire victims after the recent devastating fires," Mr Langley said.
"And so, following on from the success of The Pub's annual Pink Ribbon Ride, the idea for the Tamworth Bushfire Charity Run was born."
Registrations for the event cost $20 per rider, with all proceeds going to support bushfire victims.
"The Pub and Pub Group are very supportive of this event and see it as just another way to give back to the local community," Mr Langley said.
Registrations will be open from 8am before the ride leaves from The Pub at 9am on January 12. It will return for the show and shine expo at noon.
