Mt Druitt - St Mary's Standard (East) - - WHAT'S ON -

Mo­tor­cy­clists will swap dark leather for a more rosy colour at the an­nual Syd­ney Pink Rib­bon Mo­tor­cy­cle Ride, which this year cel­e­brates 16 years of rais­ing money and aware­ness for breast can­cer re­search. Padded bras, tu­tus and feather boas add a fem­i­nine touch to the hogs of local mo­tor­cy­clists who are not afraid to look silly to sup­port breast can­cer pa­tients and their fam­i­lies. The ride is or­gan­ised by Girls Ride Out with pro­ceeds go­ing to West­mead Breast Can­cer In­sti­tute (this year money raised will be used to pur­chase a por­ta­ble ul­tra­sound unit). The event raises money through a nom­i­nal en­try fee for rid­ers and pil­lions, who are en­cour­aged to get their friends and fam­ily to spon­sor them. There will be prizes for best dressed bike and in­di­vid­u­als. Don’t for­get to start dec­o­rat­ing a bra for the Creative Cups’ Com­pe­ti­tion. The ride starts and ends at Club Mar­coni and has var­i­ous routes that rid­ers can choose. They can even take part in the “trivia quiz” on the day with ques­tions start­ing at Club Mar­coni and at the check­point at Pic­ton Bowl­ing Club. The event is also a fam­ily one with en­ter­tain­ment, auc­tions and raf­fles. You don’t have to ride to join in ei­ther. Come dressed in pink, join fes­tiv­i­ties and do­nate. Sun­day, Oc­to­ber 16, Club Mar­coni, Boss­ley Park, for do­na­tions and reg­is­tra­tion, go to: pinkrib­bon­ride.com
