MANY of Britain's roads will be full of leather-clad bikers next weekend.
But far from being Hell's Angels, these bikers are hoping to spread the word of God.
The Christian Motorcyclists' Association will be taking to the roads as part of their annual Run for the Son charity fundraising event.
West Yorkshire branch chairman John Hallas, 53, of Roundwood Avenue, Waterloo, will be leading his bikers on the 500- mile northern route, from Widnes to Doncaster, via Edinburgh.
He said: "There is a southern run, too, so people all across the country can take part.
"There are 24 branches across the UK and we all come together because of our love for bikes. We are Christians who want to tell people about our faith.
"I suppose you could say we are alternative bikers."
CMA members have become familiar sights at raucous bikers rallies up and down the UK.
But John said they do not push their faith on to other bikers , but they are there if anybody wants to talk.
"We go to the big rallies, where there might be 5,000 bikers, and set up a 24-hour cafe, Holy Joe's. People can come in and talk about the church and the Christian movement or just for tea and a talk about bikes."
Father-of-two John will set off on his 650cc Honda Deauville - which has a top speed of about 120mph - on Saturday morning. He is due back in Huddersfield on Sunday evening.
The event will raise money for anti-drugs group The Lighthouse Foundation, overseas charity the Tear Fund, the Youth with a Mission international movement and the CMA.
