Upcoming Events

12th to 13th May 2018.

Hundreds of bikers will set out from Sydney for the Big Ride to Parkes. We hope your club would be able to join us.

The charity ride will be raising money for Parkinson’s NSW, where it will be used to support people living with Parkinson’s through their infoline, counselling, nurses in homes and other services.

Entertainment will be provided by Angry Anderson (Rose Tattoo) with food and drink packages provided by The Commercial Hotel and The Cambridge Hotel in the Parkes Town Centre. Angry will be riding with us all the way from Sydney to Parkes as he does every year. Angry is well known for his charity work and it's a rare opportunity to share a weekend ride with an Australian rock legend.

The riders will comprise bike enthusiasts of all types. With members of various social motorcycle clubs and anyone who just loves those weekend rides to nowhere. They will be on various brands and styles of motorcycles, but they will all have one destination in sight – Parkes for Parkinson’s.

Registration fees are yet to be confirmed. Online registration will be available soon. We have only recently confirmed the official date for next year. We're trying to give as much advance notice as possible to allow plenty of time to include the event in your ride calendar for 2018.
