On August 6, the Burney F Troop hosted the United Bikers of Northern California 13th Annual High Bars and Low Cars Run for the Money at the Burney Veterans Hall. F Troop is the Burney Chapter of United Bikers.

All proceeds from the run will go to One SAFE Place, an organization in Redding that provides legal services, safety, and emotional support to victims of domestic assault and sexual abuse.

The bikers gathered at the club in the morning to register. It was $20 for individuals and $35 for families. Those who registered received a map for the poker run that went up 89 to Clark Creek Road, over Lake Britton Dam back to 89, and then back to Burney. Along the way they picked up poker cards to add to their hand. Plaques were awarded for high hand and low hand.

One of the main supporters of the event was the Lions Club of Burney. After the run, there was a delicious lunch of pulled beef sandwiches, fruit salad, salad, potato salad and cookies. The Lions Club paid for all of the meat. In addition, Lion George Whitfield presented United Bikers with an additional check for $200 for One SAFE Place.

After the awards were given there was a raffle for dozens of prizes that had been donated for the event. This was followed by a 50/50 raffle. All of the proceeds from the raffles will also go to One SAFE Place.

United Bikers of Northern California is a non-profit tax exempt charitable organization dedicated to the freedom and safety of all motorcyclists. Their motto is

Ride to Live — Live to Give — Give to Ride — Live to Ride

They come up with exciting runs, charge themselves registration fees to participate in the ride, and then donate all the money to a local charity.

Greg Trotter, President of F-Troop, said, “We have reached our 13th Annual Hi Bars and Low Cars run. We are the longest running donor to One SAFE Place.”

Motorcycle riders came from Shasta, Modoc, Trinity, Butte, Tehama, Plumas, Humbolt, Glenn, Colusa, Siskiyou, Yuba and Sutter Counties.

Some of the clubs represented were Jefferson State, Hells Angels, Sons of Hell, Back From Hell, and the Christian Motorcycle Association.
