These guys are about to hit the road for a good cause.

They are taking part in the RideForZane to raise money for Westmead Children’s Hospital.

Their participation is dedicated to the memory of three-year-old Zane Urzali, who died after being hit by a car in the driveway of his family home at Ryde earlier this year.
