The fourth annual Fire it Up charity road ride took place last month with about 100 riders and pillions coming together to Benalla to raise funds and show their support for the local emergency services.
The ride, organised by Benalla Motorcycles, rumbled through the main street of Benalla with a fire truck escort from the local CFA Brigade, before heading out on their ride.
Event organiser Natasha Treacy from Benalla Motorcycles said the event was planned to raise funds for the CFA and SES.

This year, participants toured through the Strathbogie Ranges to Euroa where morning tea was provided by the local SES.
From there, it was down through Yarck, Alexandra and onto Eildon for a barbecue lunch cooked up by the Goorambat CFA overlooking the lake.

Ms Treacy thanked their major sponsor McDonalds Benalla, saying that without their support the event wouldn’t have been able to take place.
She said together with the support of local businesses and donations from motorcycles accessory suppliers, the event was a great success.
