WAXAHACHIE — The Ellis County SPCA is hosting its annual Bikers for Barkers benefit ride to support the ECSPCA on Saturday, Oct. 8.

The ride, which is $20 per bike, will start at 2570 FM 878 in Waxahachie and will continue to Waco where the riders will have lunch at Buzzard Billy’s. Proceeds from the ride will go toward purchasing a new stainless steel sink and counter for the animal shelter.

Maps will be given out the morning of the ride. Riders are encouraged to wear costumes, as the best dressed bike or person will receive a special gift.

Barry Wolverton with KBEC 1390 Classic Texas Music will handle the kickoff for the ride. Wolverton will be doing a live broadcast that morning from the Ellis County SPCA’s parking lot.
