Cape Town - More than 180 Harley Davidson riders took part in a Blanket Run for the charity initiative Kids In Dire Straits on Sunday morning.

From the start point on Signal Hill the procession was escorted by Cape Town Traffic Services in brilliant weather to Eden on the Bay, where the riders donated blankets and raised funds to ensure a warmer winter for local children in need.

The Blanket Run was organised by Blaauberg Rotary and the Free Chapter Cape Town, and supported by riders from all the local Harley-Davidson owners' clubs.
