    But these aren’t your stereo-typical bikers. The Cruz’n for Christ Motorcycle Run and Bike Show is set for Saturday.
    Signups for the run begin at 10:30; riders must pay $10, while passengers pay $5.
    That money, Anthony Storey said, will go to Motorcycles for Missionaries, a charity that provides motorcycles for missionaries in foreign countries.
