FORT PAYNE, Ala. — The Wills Town Rats hosted a benefit bike ride on Saturday for a fellow rider.

The ride was followed by Bike Night at the Fort Payne Rotary from 6pm to 9pm.

Bike Night is a monthly event open to the public held the fourth Saturday of each month (from April to September) for motorcycle and hot rod enthusiasts, young and old.

Saturday’s event boasted 20 plus riders for the benefit and over 40 plus participants at the actual event. This benefit went toward Charles Conkle, who rides with the Wills Town Rats and had a recent bike accident. The recovery after a bike accident can be a long and expensive which is why they put on this benefit. If you have been in a bike accident and are having trouble getting compensation to help pay for recovery and bike repairs then you may need a personal injury attorney to assist you.

The event is held to raise money to help different individuals or families each month. The event showcases live music, fun, games and cold drinks.

Next month’s bike night will be in conjunction with the Poker Run (put on by The Fort Payne Fire Department) to benefit the Muscular Dystrophy Association (MDA).

“I want to thank all the local merchants that have donated every year for the door prizes and giveaways for the MDA,” said Fort Payne Fire Chief Ron Saferite. “I look forward to this being our best year.”

The Fort Payne Fire Department will also begin their “Fill The Boot” fundraiser, which raises funds for MDA, starting this Saturday in Five Points. Look for them throughout the month of August to donate to a great cause.
