A one-year-old Pilbara bikers group has held it’s first annual ride to raise money for Ronald McDonald House Charities.

The IWI Riders Pilbara were welcomed to Ngarluma Ngurra one year a go, and last weekend set off on their first memorial poker run from Karratha to Pannawonica.

The group stopped along the way to remember fallen riders Hayden Murdoch, who died in 2011, and Christie Heading, a former Pannawonica worker who died on a charity run in Queensland.

Two riders travelled up from Perth to take part in the event.
