The Perth Biker’s Charity Ride is 40 years old in 2015 and is the longest running motorcycle charity event in Australia.
The first ride was in 1975 when around 40 members of Bikes Unlimited rode to Sister Kate’s Orphanage with toys for the kids,
who weren’t there because they’d been sent to people’s homes for Christmas.
So in 1976 with a few more riders, Bikes Unlimited took their gifts to the Salvation Army.
This tradition has carried on ever since and the event will have been providing much needed and appreciated donations
to the Salvation Army for 40 years in 2015.
Every year on the first Saturday of December, thousands of motorcyclists now gather together in Belmont, some dressed up,
others with their bikes dressed up and others again doing both, then set off to Arena Joondalup with all their gifts for the Salvos.
The Salvos gladly receive the gifts that include monetary donations and load their truck full of non-perishable foods or quality blankets, clothes and toys.
Over 40 years this event has provided over $2 million in donations. The event is still organised by Bikes Unlimited (Inc.) with help from volunteers who
are friends and/or fellow motorcyclists. The donations are donated directly to the Salvos, so there are no part proceeds like most other charity events.
In 2015 the Perth Biker’s Charity Ride will once again start from the popular Belmont Park Racecourse car park,
the riders leaving at 11.00am SHARP!
With Santa in the lead and the Police escorting him, the ride proceeds out of Belmont Park Racecourse car park, over the freeway bridge and guided from the on ramp across into the right lane, heading up the Graham Farmer Freeway Northand then continue up the Mitchell Freeway to Shenton Avenue
where they’ll get off and ride straight into the Arena Joondalup.
There they will fill up the main oval and hand over their donations to the Salvos.
