Honda Gears Up for the 13th Annual Snowy Ride

Posted:

Beginning as a humble gathering of motorcyclists 13 years ago, the Snowy Ride has grown into the largest community motorcycle event in Australia and the upcoming 2013 event is sure to be a success.

With just over one week until the 2013 Snowy Ride, Honda Australia, who has been the major sponsor since its inception, is gearing up to join around 3,000 participants who will descend on the beautiful Snowy Mountain region of New South Wales for the two-day event.

All funds raised by the Snowy Ride assist the Steven Walter Children‰Ûªs Cancer Foundation in their vision of achieving 100% survival for all children suffering with cancer. To date, the Steven Walter Children‰Ûªs Cancer Foundation has raised around $5 million for childhood cancer research.

To add excitement to the 2013 Snowy Ride, Honda has donated both a first and second prize motorcycle for two lucky Snowy Ride participants. To be announced on November 2 when the ride culminates at Thredbo Village, first prize will be Honda‰Ûªs sports touring VFR800F and second prize Honda‰Ûªs championship-winning CRF250X. All Snowy ride participants will automatically go in the draw to win.

During the event, Honda will be offering free test rides to participants. With a fleet of motorcycles to choose from including the stripped back Goldwing F6B, the adventure touring VFR1200X, the new CBR500R and more, participants can simply register on the day for the ride of their choice.

A third motorcycle will be up for grabs via the Snowy Ride raffle. Honda has donated a CBR1000RR which features accessories donated by Motologic.

Tickets for the raffle can be purchased via the Snowy Ride website and during the event with the lucky winner drawn during the Australian Motorcycle and Scooter Show in Sydney on November 17.

Attracting riders, pillions, manufacturers and service providers from all over the country, the Snowy Ride is the largest single event held in the Alpine Region of NSW outside of the ski season.

Honda Australia has a strong commitment to contributing to the community and is proud to have shown unwavering support to the Snowy Ride and the Steven Walter Children‰Ûªs Cancer Foundation.
