Riders from last year’s Pink Ribbon Ride Hundreds of motorcyclists will join in the 2014 Pink Ribbon Ride this Sunday to raise awareness and much-needed funds for people affected by breast cancer.
The local chapter of riders will depart from the Ballarat Town Hall at 9am and head 100 kilometres down the highway to the Wyndham Civic Centre in Werribee, collecting donations as they go.
Organiser of the Ballarat leg of the Pink Ribbon Ride, Dale Alexander, has been involved in the event for the last five years.
He’ll be at the head of the hogs this Sunday sitting atop his trusty Triumph Thunderbird.
“It’s great to help out,” Mr Alexander said.
“My other half, she jumps on the back and looks after the donations – it gets pretty busy.”
Like many Australians, Mr Alexander and his family have been personally touched by cancer.
“My mother died of cancer, and my partner’s mother as well,” he said.
The Ballarat riders are hoping to raise at least $400.
Raffles, stunt riders and trade displays will be on at the Wyndham Civic Centre from 11am Sunday.
