Canberra turned out her finest weather today for the Annual 'Pink Ribbon Ride' organised by 'Girls on the move'. The ride is of course a charity ride in support of Breast Cancer research.
The kick-off was , rather respectfully I thought for a Sunday, at 10 am.
I would estimate about 200 bikes were there lined up under the Australian coat of arms. I was 154 and we were early so a rough figure. All up an impressive mob. There was a huge array of makes and models of bike with many contesting for the best dressed bike and riders in the pink theme.
Registration and bikers of all flavours...
A few Spyders followed the main pack...
Coffee @ Bungendore...
From there it was back through to the Federal Highway and south towards Eagle Hawk pub where the raffles were drawn. A little sad to learn after the ride but this is probably the last year the Girls will be hosting the event. In fact the word was the club was disbanding. I hope another riding group in Canberra takes up the reigns and continues the tradition next year.
For us it was then off to Rose Cottage Inn for a retro afternoon band and a refreshing beverage to end a great morning.
I have not seen the trycs with the two wheels in front before, leastways, not in this century.ReplyDelete
