Snowy Ride 2017
Saturday 4 Nov, 2017
Once the snow clears for the season and the weather warms up a little, the Snowy Ride gives motorcyclists plenty of reasons to come to Thredbo to enjoy the long, winding roads of the Snowy Mountains region and raise vital funds for research into a cure for childhood cancer at the same time.
The Snowy Ride is a fun fundraising motorcycle ride where you choose how much or how little riding you’d like to do. You can leave from anywhere, whenever you like, and take whatever route you like around checkpoints in Adaminaby, Dalgety, Berridale, Jindabyne, Cooma, Bombala, Charlotte Pass and Thredbo. Just by entering and paying your $60 entry fee for the Snowy Ride, you’re automatically in the draw to win one of two Honda motorcycles, with a combined value of $25,000, which have been generously donated to the Steven Walter Children’s Cancer Foundation by Honda Motorcycles Australia.
And as host for the main event and Snowy Ride presentation, there’s plenty to do in Thredbo even if you haven’t got your own set of wheels. Honda Motorcycles brings a fleet of brand new bikes and offers free test rides, there’s live entertainment on Friday and Saturday nights, BBQs, toboggan rides and plenty of bikes to admire.
The Snowy Ride has been held in the Alpine Region of NSW since 2001 and has helped the Steven Walter Children’s Cancer Foundation (SWCCF) raise in excess of $7 million for research into a cure for childhood cancer. All monies raised by SWCCF goes to childhood cancer research programs and support of children with cancer. The aim of the Snowy Ride is to involve the motorcycle riders of Australia in raising money for research into childhood cancer and its side effects and to give the local volunteer organisations of the Snowy mountains area the chance to raise money for their own communities.
