Awareness ride for Daniel Morcombe
Ray Harris had the idea of organising a bike ride to maintain public awareness of Daniel Morcombe's disappearance.
The ride will take place on December 12th. Members of several Ulysses branches and other clubs are expected on the ride. See the Participating Clubs page for details. All motorcyclists, whether affiliated with a club or not, are very welcome. There will be a donation of $10 per bike for participants. This will pay for a commemorative patch and all remaining money will be donated to the Morcombe family trust. Pillions may also buy a patch for $5.
If you would like to come on the ride as a pillion but have no ride arranged, we will try to match you up with a solo rider. We will be asking for a donation of $10, the same as the riders are paying, and you will receive in return a commemorative patch. If you are interested in joining the ride as a pillion, please email us, stating your preference for a ride on a cruiser, touring or sports machine. Any solo riders please email us too if you are willing to take a pillion on the day. We will endeavour to accomodate all interested pillions, on a first come first served basis. We cannot guarantee you a ride but we will let you know the likelihood of a pillion seat being available before the big day.
The ride will assemble at the Ettamogah Pub next to the Bruce Highway from 8:30 a.m. on December 12th. An area will be fenced off for assembly.
We will depart around 10 a.m.
From the pub we will head north on the Highway, exit at Cooroy, travel east to Tewantin and Noosaville, then south to Sunshine Beach, on to Coolum, Mudjimba, onto the Sunshine Motorway then onto the Bruce and back to the Ettamogah.
The ride is 110 kilometres and expected to take about two and a half hours.
