Pink Ribbon Motorcycle Ride
Harley-Davidson riders will be swapping their black leather and intimidating demeanour and will be looking pretty in pink on Sunday, October 13 as riders take to the roads for Sydney’s Pink Ribbon Motorcycle Ride.
Organised by Girls Ride Out Inc and sponsored by Harley-Davidson, the popular annual event is expected to attract thousands of riders and spectators alike to raise funds and awareness for breast cancer research and go directly to the Westmead Breast Cancer Institute.
This year’s event will kick off with a Fair Day from 9.00am at The Mean Fiddler, Rouse Hill, with food and coffee stalls, a Harley-Davidson photo booth and the Harley-Davidson ‘Jumpstart’ Rider Experience. The ride will depart at 10am, with riders being joined by celebrity Harley enthusiasts.
Riders will then head to a half-way checkpoint at a park on the Colo River for refreshments provided by the local Lions club, before returning to The Mean Fiddler.
The ride raises money through a small entry fee for riders and pillions, who are also encouraged to get their friends and family to sponsor their participation in the ride.
Last year’s event was the largest to date with 1600 two-wheel participants and more than $80,000 raised, according to Selena Thurbon, Founder of Girls Ride Out Inc.
