BIKERS took the roads to raise money for two Northallerton community charities and the Yorkshire Air Ambulance.

Around 30 bikers took part in the first-ever ride-out organised to raise funds for Chopsticks and Northdale Horticultural as well as the air ambulance.

They took a 90-mile route from Northallerton through the Dales via Hawes and braved inclement weather to stop off at Tan Hill before finishing at John Wray Country Stoves in Brompton on Swale for a raffle.

The ride-out raised just over £455 to be shared by the three charities and organisers say it may become an annual event.
