Hundred of bikers hit the road, looking to spread some Christmas cheer to some needy Big Bend families Sunday.

It was all part of the annual Tallahassee H.O.Gs Toys for Tots Ride. The bikers rode from Capital City Harley-Davidson to Miller's Ale House where they each dropped off at least one children's toy, which were collected by members of the U.S. Marine Corps.

"We have many things that others don't have so it feels good to give others that don't have things that we're fortunate to have," says rider Wayne Sharpton.

Nearly 450 bikers turned out for the ride. Donations can still be dropped of at Capital City Harley-Davidson during normal business hours.

    What a nice sight to see all of the bikes carrying toys for less fortunate children, especially in these trying economic times.
