Bad weather cancelled many events in Northland last weekend - the Mid Northern Rodeo, a family gala day at Ruakaka Beach and the miniature train rides in Maunu.
But heavy rain and gale force winds failed to deter motorcycle riders making a 275km charity run.
Forty bikes took part in the “Iron Horses” rally to help raise funds for Whangarei branch of Riding for the Disabled yesterday.

Jeni Claris, Vice President of the Whangarei Riding for the Disabled would like to thank Nick Padfield for all his hard work with this event and would also like to thank all the business that contributed and our volunteers and of course the riders for making this such a great day. We look forward to seeing you all next year.
