Features: Ladies of Harley ride out for charity

Dublin Harley-Davidson was the place to be on Sunday last, October 27th, where despite the blustery and wet conditions, the annual Ladies of Harley ride out in aid of Action Breast Cancer took to the roads.
 
Approximately 60 hardy Harley riders took part in this colourful and audible event, the air filled with v-twin rumble and appropriate music emanating from some on-board stereos, all accompanied by beaming smiles from riders and passers-by alike. So far these charitable Ladies have raised €2250 for the worthy cause, much to the delight of all concerned, including the very supportive staff at Dublin Harley-Davidson and the Ladies of Harley group.
 
Open to all, the event attracted male and female to Jeff Murphy’s Dublin Harley Davidson emporium at Ballymount, where on various make of motorcycle, their combined focus was on raising as much funding as possible for Action Breast Cancer, during October’s Breast Cancer Awareness month.

Resplendent in pink shirts and pink nail varnish, the riders all fuelled up on complimentary tea and coffee, plus copious amounts of sticky buns, prior to rolling on their ride out at noon.
 
Their circuitous hour and a half journey took them into the heart of the city, ending appropriately at the Hard Rock Café in Temple Bar, where they celebrated good health, friendship and their love of the road.
