The best thing on two wheels will be returning to Koorawatha this month.

The third annual Koorawatha Biker Bash Leukaemia Foundation Charity Ride will hit the road on February 20.

Event organiser, James Lambshead, said the ride would involve a 200 kilometre round trip returning to Koorawatha

"We're pleased to announce that Hotel Koorawatha is open again for business and this will definitely be an event not to be missed," he said.

"We'll have a live rock band on the night for entertainment, meat raffles, prize raffles all day and night, a big breakfast in the morning and barbecue dinner available at night, with lunch at the pub on the ride.

"Jamie and Heidi have done an amazing job on restoring Hotel Koorawatha beyond what it has ever been before.

"Food is great, beers are cold and they deserve a pat on the back for what they have done to the pub and for our community.

"So spread the word amongst your friends and come along for a great weekend."

Free camping will be available, with the event having use of the Hall to throw swags or alternatively attendees can rent a room at the pub.

Entry into the ride is $25 per person and $10 for passengers, with all money raised going to the Leukaemia Foundation.

Mr Lambshead said, in the two years since the event has been running, it had raised just under $10,000.

"It is absolutely fantastic seeing we are such a small town," he said.

"I'm grateful for everything that the Leukaemia Foundation has done for me and this is my way of helping them and others in need and we get to have a great time gathering together for a great cause.

"So set the date and make a plan to make the next Koorawatha Biker Bash the biggest and best one yet," he said. The ride will leave at 10am and return to the pub around 3.30pm. Breakfast and registration will start at 8am and all motorcycles are welcome to come along and have a good time.
