This event is the brainchild of Division 12 Moreton Bay Regional Councillor, Tony Latter, which has gained support from fellow councillors, the mayor and parts of the broader community.
“So, this is an idea I had around 10 months ago, really trying to bring a highlight to domestic violence in the region,” Cr Latter said to Scott Lachmund at the Red Ride launch in the video above.
The primary beneficiary of this fundraising event is Act for Kids, who is an Australian charity providing free therapy and support services to children and families who have experienced, or are at risk of child abuse and neglect.
Red Ride will kick off at the Caboolture Showgrounds from 8:00 AM Saturday, 1 May, with a blessing of the bikes, riders will then make their way through Morayfield, Redcliffe, Samford Valley, Dayboro, Mt Mee and finish at Woodford.
At the Woodford showgrounds, there will be a smoking ceremony by the Jinibara people and a motorbike show and shine, stalls and presentations hosted by 4OUR Moreton Bays Own Radio Station – 101.5FM, and a concert headlined by Dave Reynolds.
If you don’t have a motorbike to ride, you can head straight to the Woodford showgrounds, either way, tickets need to be pre-purchased.
