The Scrapheap Adventure Ride is a unique fundraising event which involves motorcycle enthusiasts from all over the country purchasing a bike for no more than $1000 and doing it up for an adventure ride through the Aussie outback, all while raising money for people with Down syndrome.
In just six years the event has raised nearly $500,000 for Down Syndrome NSW.
Riders begin their journey at home or wherever they like but arrive at the same destination.
This year that destination is Green Valley Farm, Tingha, in North Western NSW, where all ‘Scrappers’ plus family and friends will meet for a weekend of fun and entertainment at a campsite from September 29 to October 1.
Our target for 2017 is 100 riders raising $100,000 for Down Syndrome NSW. So what are you waiting for? Click here to join the 2017 Scrapheap Adventure Ride.
If you’re not a rider, you can support the Scrapheap Adventure Ride and Down Syndrome NSW by sponsoring a rider or just donating to the cause.
Scrapheap Adventure Ride is about having fun, raising awareness and funds for Down Syndrome NSW.
Whilst all bikes are welcome, the idea is to start with a bike costing less than $1000 and spend any additional sums on the bike to make it roadworthy. All machines participating must be registered.
Then make a (suggested) $100 tax deductible donation to register. Set up your Scrapheap Adventure Ride challenge webpage (only takes a minute), add photos, blog entries, etc so your friends can check out your machine and sponsor your ride.
And if you can’t find a suitable Scrapper to ride, you are welcome to ride your everyday bike and still participate in the event.
Support vehicles for the Scrapheap riders are also welcome and carry fuel, water, food, and any Scrappers that don’t make the distance.
