“Get your pinks out and ride.”
That’s the catch-cry for October and the Pink Ribbon Rides around the country that raise money for breast cancer awareness.
There are many rides in capital cities and provincial centres and we can’t hope to cover them all.
If you know of a ride in your area, please put something in the “comments” section below and I’ll update this blog.
In Melbourne the ride is scheduled for October 27 starting from Docklands Subaru at 10am and riding to Werribee. Cost is $20 per rider. Stunt rider Lukey Luke and local bands will provide entertainment.
The Melbourne ride last year had a record attendance of 702 riders and they are hoping to break that this year.
The Sydney Pink Ribbon Ride is on October 13 from 10am at the Mean Fiddler at Rouse Hill. This year funds raised will go to Westmead Breast Cancer Institute. There will be stalls and a full day’s fair activities.
Other centres don’t seem to have anything firm yet, so keep an eye on their Facebook pages:
Brisbane has no details yet, but keep checking.
Adelaide isn’t doing anything this year, but will have a casual ride on October 20 at 9.30am with a venue to be decided.
