Variety the Children’s Charity will start its 2021 motorcycle ride calendar with the Adventure Ride leaving from Goulburn NSW this Sunday (14 March 2021).

Future events include the Postie Bike Dash in October 2021 and the 2022 Adventure Ride to be held again in March. For more details on Variety’s motorcycle rides visit the website.

This weekend adventure bike riders will roll through the Snowy Mountains, NSW South Coast and Central NSW to help kids in need and support regional communities.

The Variety Adventure Ride is a six-day motorcycle event departing from Goulburn on Sunday.

Participants in the Variety Adventure Ride commit to raising at least $2000 to take part in the road trip with funds raised to help Variety – the Children’s Charity supporting children who are sick, disadvantaged or living with special needs across NSW and the ACT.

If you can raise $2000 in the next couple of days you can join by registering here.

The ride is a celebration of the group’s completed fundraising efforts and also brings business into regional towns through accommodation, meals, fuel and more for the riders.

Variety NSW/ACT Acting General Manager David Small says the trip not only explores regions but also builds new friendships.

“The Adventure Ride is not a race or a contest of any kind – it’s an adventure exploring the countryside by motorbike,” he says.

“Riders do all their fundraising before hitting the road – helping kids and their families who are doing it tough and providing much needed support to regional communities.

“The Variety Adventure Ride also benefits the towns it passes through, with more than $5,000 generally spent on local services and facilities in each town the group stops at.

“It’s a terrific way to help two groups of people at once – kids and businesses who all deserve a fair go.”
