Joondalup Weekender - - News -

EX­PECT a sea of red Santa suits, thou­sands of roar­ing en­gines and smoke flash­ing by on the free­way from Bur­swood to Joon­dalup this Sun­day.

The 43rd an­nual Perth Bik­ers’ Char­ity Ride will start at Op­tus Sta­dium and ends at HBF sta­dium in Joon­dalup at 9am on Sun­day, De­cem­ber 2.

Thou­sands of bik­ers will bring a do­nated toy or present to fill up the trucks at HBF sta­dium for the Sal­va­tion Army to dis­trib­ute dur­ing Christ­mas.

Gin­gin biker and event or­gan­iser Colin ‘Ban­dit’ Scott said this year’s ride would in­clude a record at­tempt, a new start­ing venue and an en­dorse­ment from singer Saman­tha Jade.

“What we’re try­ing to do this year is to set a record of the most San­tas on mo­tor­cy­cles,” he said.

Main Roads will close off sec­tions of the free­way for the Bik­ers’ Char­ity Ride.

Any mo­tor­cy­clists want­ing to par­tic­i­pate must ar­rive at Op­tus Sta­dium be­fore 8.30am on Sun­day, De­cem­ber 2.
