Our aim is to collect enough food to be able to make up 100 hampers, & with help from local business we well on the way to achieve this target.

   The ride starts from Eat Street Café at Gosford water front ending at  the Doylason RSL, where participants can purchase lunch at members price & raffles will be drawn with some great prizes on offer.

   Media will be attending the day & our local MP, so this will be a great event to show how the community can get together for a great cause. I have attached our ride leaflet & a list of suggested food.

Syndey to Parks N.S.W.

 

Hello,

THE BIG RIDE 4 PARKINSON’S will be held on 19th to 20th May 2018.

 

We hope Yamaha XS650 Club will consider joining us to provide Help for Today and Hope for Tomorrow.

 

Hundreds of bikers will set out from Sydney for the Big Ride to Parkes. We hope your club would be able to join us.

 

 The charity ride will be raising money for Parkinson’s NSW, where it will be used to support people living with Parkinson’s through their infoline, counselling, nurses in homes and other services.

 

 Entertainment will be provided by Angry Anderson (Rose Tattoo) with food and drink packages provided by The Commercial Hotel and The Cambridge Hotel in the Parkes Town Centre. Angry will be riding with us all the way from Sydney to Parkes as he does every year. Angry is well known for his charity work and it's a rare opportunity to share a weekend ride with an Australian rock legend.

 

 The riders will comprise bike enthusiasts of all types. With members of various social motorcycle clubs and anyone who just loves those weekend rides to nowhere. They will be on various brands and styles of motorcycles, but they will all have one destination in sight – Parkes for Parkinson’s.

 

Registration fees are yet to be confirmed. Online registration will be available soon. We have only recently confirmed the official date for next year. We're trying to give as much advance notice as possible to allow plenty of time to include the event in your ride calendar for 2018.
