Motorcycle mothers hit the streets for Route 66 Fun Run

Posted: Updated:

Mother's looking to get out and enjoy the sunshine Sunday and took to the streets on two wheels for the Mothers Day on the Mother Road Fun Run.

The first motorcycle out on the fun run left from Cowboy Gelato on 6th Street. The Route 66 Fun Run consisted of four different stops, some in Amarillo and one all the way in Vega, and then ending back at Wild Bill's Fill'N Station.

The money raised from Sunday's Fun Run will benefit old Route 66 and fund projects to help beautify it.

With some 75 bikes entered in Sunday's Fun Run, the group is hoping to raise around $3,000 to $4,000.
