GALLERY: Bikers roll the dice

THE American Motorcycle Club Australia came together in Bendigo on Saturday to raise money to combat prostate cancer. 

More than 200 bikers from across Australia donated $20 to ride from Bendigo to Mount Tarrengower and back again. 

Central Victoria chapter president Matrix, who didn't wish to use his real name, said the ride would take about four hours.

At each stop, dice will be rolled and whoever gets the highest score wins $500. - Matrix

"At each stop, dice will be rolled and whoever gets the highest score wins $500," he said. 

"A prize will also be given to the person who gets the lowest score,

"There is no skill to it, it's just luck."

Matrix said he was pleased the weather had cooled down. 

"The conditions are much better," he said. 

"We notified police that we would be doing a ride.

"We don't expect there will be any trouble with them.

"We are a social club not an outlaw club so there aren't usually any dramas."

Bendigo Police Sergeant Jason McDermott said Highway Patrol would monitor the ride for traffic reasons.

"We don't expect to have any issues," he said. 

"It's just because there are so many bikes, we want to make sure traffic flows okay."

Matrix said the club would have lunch at Mount Tarrengower and would end the ride at Allies Hotel in Maiden Gully. 

"Lunch will be put on by a Bridgewater sporting club."

Matrix said he feared club rides could soon be banned in Victoria following tough anti-bikie laws in Queensland. 

Under the new laws, alleged criminal gang bikies and associates are banned from meeting in public spaces in groups of three or more. 

Five Victorian 'bikies' were arrested in Queensland earlier this month.
