For the ninth consecutive year, an adventure ride is being organised for motorcyclists with a taste for putting gravel in their travels to attend The Snowy Ride motorcycle charity event at Thredbo, which raises funds for the Steven Walter Childrens Cancer Foundation.
Dubbed the Ride To The Snowy Ride Adventure, this free one-day ‘Getting There’ ride will take place on Friday, November 2, and will lead participants from Bowral just south of Sydney all the way to Thredbo in the Snowy Mountains via lonely back-roads and fire-trails through southern NSW.
The next day, Saturday November 3, riders join in The Snowy Ride festivities, which, since the ride’s inception in 2001, have raised millions of dollars to support the SWCCF. The foundation was created in memory of NSW junior enduro racer Steven Walter, who was diagnosed with cancer at age 11 and passed away at 19 years of age.
Hosted by Ténéré Tragics trail bosses Andrew Clubb and Clive Ward from MotorcycleBiz, with support from Yamaha Motor Australia.
The Friday Ride to The Snowy Ride Adventure is open to riders on all brands of adventure bikes and is free to join, however riders must register for The Snowy Ride charity event via the www.stevenwalterfoundation.org.au website.
“The Snowy Ride is always one of the best feel-good weekends of the year that brings together thousands of bike riders for a very worthy cause,” enthuses Andrew ‘Captain Tragic’ Clubb.
“We’re rapt to be able to play a small part in supporting the event each year by hosting our Ride To The Snowy Ride Adventure on the Friday and bringing adventure riders to what is otherwise seen as a road-biased event.
“Our Friday adventure ride down through the southern highlands is a pretty cruisy route that’s aimed at adventure riders of all abilities on all types of bikes, where the emphasis is on having a great time with new riding mates, to then be set to enjoy The Snowy Ride in Thredbo on the Saturday.”
