Registration for the 2017 Snowy Ride opened on Saturday 1 July. This year’s Snowy Ride is on Saturday 4 November 2017.
The Snowy Ride is a motorcycle event run annually in the Alpine Region of NSW since 2001 and has helped the Steven Walter Children’s Cancer Foundation (SWCCF) raise in excess of $6 million for research into a cure for childhood cancer.
It’s an opportunity for riders to enjoy a weekend away with friends and family and to ride some of Australia’s best and most picturesque roads. Snowy Ride checkpoints are located at Adaminaby, Dalgety, Berridale, Jindabyne, Cooma, Bombala, Charlotte Pass and riders are to be at the final checkpoint in Thredbo by 4pm on the Saturday.
All monies raised by SWCCF goes to childhood cancer research programs and support of children with cancer. The aim of the Snowy Ride was to involve the motorcycle riders of Australia into 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.
There’s some awesome prizes up for grabs: the winner and runner up will each receive a Honda motorcycle, with a combined value of $25,000.
