Video: 200 Santas on Harley Davidsons tour Brussels

More than 200 Harley Davidson bikers rode the streets of Brussels dressed as Father Christmas on Sunday to raise money for charity.

This is the fifth year running that the ride has been organised and this year's beneficiary was Mistral Gagnant, a Brussels charitable organisation that helps sick children realise their dreams.

The Santas met outside Autoworld on Sunday morning, where a large number of Harley Davidsons are currently on display in an exhibition of American dream cars and bikes.

The ride finished at the Winter Wonders Christmas market in the centre of town, where they handed out sweets and gifts.

As well as supporting a local charity, organisers say the ride aims to "change the 'bad boy' image that some people have of Harley riders".
