Rid­ers rev fes­tive spirit

Southern Telegraph - - News -

Up to 700 mo­tor­cy­clists are set to hit the road to share in the Christ­mas spirit, with the an­nual Mo­tor­cy­cle Charity Toy Ride set to roll through the Peel re­gion on Satur­day, December 9.

Now in its 26th year, the ride will see hun­dreds of mo­tor­cy­clists do­nate toys, money and food parcels to those in need across the re­gion.

The event, which ini­tially started as a hugely suc­cess­ful toy ride for dis­ad­van­taged chil­dren, has evolved as re­quests for food parcels have grown in­creas­ingly in re­cent years.

Har­ley-David­sons, Spy­ders and cus­tom trikes are all set to be on dis­play dur­ing the muchloved ride, which is set to be­gin in Pinjarra at Sir Ross McClarty Oval at 10am.

Santa is set to lead the ride, which will drive down Dixon Av­enue then on to For­rest Street, be­fore turn­ing into Pinjarra Road and head­ing to­wards the Man­durah fore­shore. The ride will fin­ish on the Western Fore­shore about 11.30am, where there will be a sausage siz­zle, raf­fles, music and stalls.

Those with a mo­tor­bike who are in­ter­ested in tak­ing part can con­tact [email protected] hot­mail.com.
