Charity ride in scenic Noosa

Charity ride

The sixth annual Noosa Charity Bike Ride will be held on Sunday September 14 through some of the most beautiful country in South East Queensland.

Better still, you will be helping to raise money and awareness for Sunshine Butterflies, a not-for-profit local charity assisting people with disabilities and their families.Charity ride

The Australian Motorcycle Council says it can’t estimated the many millions of dollars that riders raise for charities around the nation each year and this is another prime example.

Sunshine Butterflies spokeswoman Sandy Moore says all proceeds will go to the charity. She says that they usually get about 150 riders and raise about $4000 each year.

“It’s hard to know exactly how many will come because most people just arrive on the day. We always a lot of returning riders such as members of the Patriots Australia Motorcycle Club Wide Bay Chapter.” The ride is suitable for all types of road bike, she says.

The 100km ride will take you through the sights around Noosa’s coastline and country roads, from Noosa Woods through Noosa Junction, along the coast through Peregian Beach to Coolum, Yandina and Eumundi for the first stop at The Imperial Lionheart Hotel for morning tea and raffle draws. then it’s on to Tewantin, Cooroibah and finishing at the Pomona Hotel for more raffle prizes and an auction of the collector’s 2014 Noosa Charity Bike Ride flag. 

Cost is $20 per bike, with limited edition t-shirts available for $25 at registration from 8am at Noosa Woods, Noosa Heads. The ride departs at 10 am.
