ALBANY - Good-hearted Harley riders are getting ready for a ride to the beach.

They all met at Hooter's tonight for a pre-party for the Saturday run to the sun and fun to benefit the Muscular Dystrophy Association.

Riders pay $10 to ride and $10 for a passenger to take the two and half hour journey. They said they couldn't think of any better way to have fun and help children at the same time.

"This is Harley Davidson's 100th anniversary and Harley Davidson is trying to raise $5 million for Muscular Dystrophy," said Wes Taliaferro. "So, we have come together as Flint River Harley Owners Group and (are) trying to help them raise that money."

Almost 300 bikers will leave Albany Saturday morning at 9a.m. They have a full day of activities planned in Panama City Beach, including a contest to see who can hit the most bugs on the drive down.
