Gunnedah N.S.W.



                         12th October 2019 GUNNEDAH N.S.W

I would firstly like to invite your club to attend our 2019 event and secondly am asking if any other group has an event planned for the 12th October 2019 as we donít want to clash with any other rides.

Over the past 2 years The Letís Beat The Bastard Ride, with the help of all of the amazing  people who attended or supported us  managed to raise over $14.000 for the Australian Cancer Research Foundation and on the 12th of October 2019 we are hoping to make it even bigger and better.

Most of us have either lost loved ones and close friends or know someone fighting with the bastard CANCER. The Letís Beat the Bastard ride is a day out on our bikes (or car) in support of those suffering from or who has lost loved ones to this BASTARD of a disease; hopefully with a few donations from all we can raise a few dollars for cancer research.

Anyone is welcome to attend and if you donít have a bike you are welcome to tag along in your car.

The route is yet to be confirmed, but will be a round trip of about 400Ks starting and finishing in Gunnedah, lunch will be planned somewhere along the route.

The ride will depart Kitchener oval at 09:00.

The cost for the day is $60.00 which will include a Beat the Bastard Ride patch, ACRF ribbon, lunch at TBA and a BBQ (steak, sausage, salad and bread roll) for dinner at the Gunnedah Services and Bowling club.


A raffle will be conducted on the night with some great prizes available with entertainment by the BUDGIES  

I know itís still a few months away, But I need confirmation that you will be attending A.S.A.P.                                                                                                                                                                                                        

Please pass this onto all your family and friends and if you have or know someone with a business that may be prepared to donate items for the auction, please let me know.
