GOD'S SPEED: God's Squad Motorcycle Club will ride into Chinchilla at the weekend.

GOD'S Squad Motorcycle Club are on the road and headed for Chinchilla this weekend.

From Rockhampton to Bundaberg, Toowoomba, Brisbane, the Gold Coast and Northern NSW and as far away as Yass, more than 50 riders will be in town from March 18-19.

God's Squad is a patch club (meaning members wear club colours) but is not one of the clubs proscribed in Queensland VLAD legislation as a criminal gang.

The club is inviting the public to spend an evening them with a free barbecue at the Bulldogs Rugby League Club on Saturday, March 18.

The community will have the opportunity to meet some of members and hear about the club's work among motorcycle clubs, including the clubs which have now been banned as criminal organisations in Queensland.

God's Squad Motorcycle Club started 45 years ago in Sydney and now has branches in most states.

The club's founding member, Dr John Smith once lived in Chinchilla.

"The club ministers among outlawed biker clubs and to people on society's fringes,” club member Kerry 'Hermit' Green said.

"We are proud to be friends of all bikers including the motorcycle clubs that were banned under the LNP's VLAD and anti-association laws. Jesus, too, was criticised because he was friends with the wrong people.

"We hope the people of Chinchilla will come and meet us.”
