    This is an automated posting of an Events Calendar entry.
  2. The Pink Ribbon Ride is a motorcycle event that raises awareness and funds for The Cancer Council Victoria and takes place on Sunday OCTOBER 25th 2009. We have starting locations from 9 locations around Victoria. Riders are expected to arrive at Point Cook around 11am.

    Point Cook Motorcycle club together with the Point Cook Town Centre has organised a festival at Point Cook. The main roads will be closed off to traffic with only motorcycle parking on these roads. Entertainment will be provided by local schools, Mr Greg Evans and music bands including Retromax. There will be some motorcycle related traders showing their wares at the centre.
    Riders pay $20 entree to the ride and everyone is encouraged to purchase some raffle tickets. Prices for the raffle are supplied by our corporate sponsors. These include a $400 advanced rider training package at Broadford racetrack from Stay Upright, clothing from Girl Rider and others. Our goal this year is to raise in excess of $30.000.00 for the Cancer Council Victoria.
    We ask that you make this ride part of your ride calendar, spread the word, invite your friends and make sure that your motorcycle club takes part.

  11. I won't be there, I would have liked to go as had a sister in law who died of this over a year ago, but I will be in Sydney, competing with my dog in dock jumping, they are paying me $500, for my dog to run and jump off a pier into the water.
  12. BTW re the directions post,

    the Baxter-Tooradin road post has Bendigo as well as the correct Bunnings Bendigo one.

    Westgate shell.

    See you all in pink.

  17. Me and My sis coming. Leaving from Ferntere Gully Hotel....might have to find a pink ribbon to tie to my mirrors.

    Bikechickadee...any other netriders leaving from FGH ?
  18. yeah I'll be there on a black and gold gixxer 1K with my partner
  19. Hi Tim,

    Saw a black n gold gixxer at FGH but no one around. Then the signal to start up and when next I looked up it was gone !!

    Thought there would be more bikes at Point Cook, I think the riders from FGH made up at least 30%+....maybe the initial sprinkle from the heavens put a few people off.

    Anyway a nice day..and the sun came out to play.

    Thanks to the organisers...I will remember to put a tad more pink on my bike as felt a little under-dressed compared to some !!
  20. Hope we were nice. Good to see so much support.
