The Ladies of Harley riders rolled out of Quincy and into Iowa Sunday afternoon. They rode to benefit the Meals on Wheels Program in Quincy.
Throughout the morning, dozens of riders signed up at the TNT Action Sports store. Ten dollars got them a hand in poker and a ride up Hwy 96 through cities like Nauvoo, Niota, Dallas City and Keokuk.
"We chose Meals on Wheels, because it's just one of the charities that we support. We support many throughout Quincy, but it's one of the local ones that don't receive much attention, so we're giving it attention," said Shawn Elkins, one of the group's riders.
"They provide meals for individuals that cannot cook for themsleves or that are homebound and cannot get out of their homes," said Susan Cobb, a member of the Ladies of Harley.
"We would love to see more people riding for Meals on Wheels, because it's such an important program to so many people in Quincy," said Elkins.
Riders met back up at the senior center in Quincy around 5:00 Sunday evening, where organizers dealt the first hand of poker. One hundred percent of the donations will go to Quincy's Meals on Wheels Program.
