DAVENPORT, Iowa – Local bikers gathered Saturday to help put a stop to child abuse.
It was all part of the Bikers Against Child Abuse’s Iowa Fall Ride. Bikers gathered at Wiebler’s Harley Davidson in Davenport and rode 140 miles, ending their ride in Bettendorf.
Bikers Against Child Abuse works directly with children to prevent physical, sexual, and emotional abuse by giving kids a positive role model to confide in; a cause that the bikers in Saturday’s ride say is easy to get behind.
“I don’t think any child should live in fear. I have grandkids and I would never want them to live in fear, so it’s just, it’s a good cause,” said Larry “Bear” Armstrong, who rode in the Iowa Fall Ride.
