About forty bikers pulled up to the Ronald McDonald House in St. Petersburg on Sunday afternoon.  They came to the house to bring toys to dozens of sick kids.


"I have two kids of my own and I wouldn't want to be in that situation and maybe not be able to give them a toy or two," said Alex Guiterrez.


The bikers are part of the Tampa Bay area motorcycle group Los Duros.  Group leaders said there are about two hundred people in the group.  They said many of the group members donated a toy to help the children at the Ronald McDonald House.


"If I can just smiles on the kids faces I'd go home a happy man," said Guiterrez.


The group caught some attention on I-275, because Santa was leading the bike on his motorcycle.  Group members said they had a blast participating in the ride.


"We're actually more than just a biker group of people that have the passion for two wheels, we love family," said Daniela Vasco.
