    Hi to all, organising a ride for charity across Australia in late 2017, taking inspiration from Winifred Wells, who in 1950 as a 22 year old rode a Royal Enfield across Australia from Perth in the West to Sydney in the East via the cities of Adelaide and Melbourne, then back again doing some 5,500miles. My ride will raise funds to train Guide Dogs. Im still working on exact details, but this will be a great opportunity to see the bottom section of Australia with an experienced traveller and do something great for your fellow man. I will have to limit numbers so I'm giving the heads up a little at a time so as I'm not inundated with enquiries and entries. I will soon have specific contact info, but if you want to know more now, to start planning your holiday email me at pamsmcride@gmail.com or check out my Facebook or web site www.pamsmcride.com.au or phone me in Australia 0458294271 all the best Beetle

    Had an hour plus meeting with Guide Dogs Victoria, they now understand more about what we are up to. They have, among other things offered 2 full size Collection Dogs to go in Pubs of my choice. We are close to having a price per rider per section, this will also have a raising of separate funds part that will be collected/raised by the Rider themselves. Our idea here is to have all Riders raising as much money as possible before we even start the ride. We will on our part be getting Sponsors on board to add to the collection plate. Our goal off raising $105,000 (enough to train 3 dogs) is looking more and more a reality. With things working to plan, We see us having a prize of a bike for the most amount raised by an individual rider.

    (Perth, Adelaide, Melbourne, Sydney and return)



    Ride across Australia and help raise AU$105,000 for Guide Dogs Victoria

    It takes AU$35000 and two years to breed, raise, train and match a Guide Dog with someone who has vision loss. Guide Dogs Victoria exists to help people with vision loss lead independent and safe lives; something that most of us take for granted on a daily basis.

    Proceeds raised from PAMS Ride will directly support the Guide Dogs Victoria breeding program and it is hoped that we can raise enough funds to support the breeding and training of three dogs.

    JOIN A RIDE THAT WILL CHANGE SOMEONE’S LIFE FOREVER

    This amazing ride will take inspiration from Winifred Wells, who at 22 years old, left Perth on Boxing Day 1950 and rode her Royal Enfield Bullet 350cc motorcycle solo all the way to Sydney and return. Given the road conditions of that time, it was an epic ride which seized the imagination and we intend to do it again…

    We’ll be departing Perth, as Winifred did, taking 30 days to ride the over 9,000kms to Sydney and return. You can join the ride at any one of the 6 Stages, but choosing to join will mean you’ll be helping to change someone’s life forever.

    The ride will take you to some of the most fascinating, beautiful & iconic places in Southern Australia. You’ll be riding with likeminded people; feeling safe and secure that you are with others and enjoy the comradery that the open spaces create. You’ll build lifelong relationships whilst travelling and you’ll meet a wide variety of locals who call Australia home.

    Facts & Stats:

    • Departure date: 26 Dec 2017

    • Journey outline: 9000kms - Perth to Sydney return via Adelaide and Melbourne

    • Full journey time: 30 days

    • Accommodation and catering will be your own care (you may even want to bring your own back up crew)

    • Benefitting charity: Guide Dogs Victoria

    • Aim: To raise AU$105,000 – enough to breed and train 3 Guide Dogs



    What to do next:

    • Mark it in the calendar

    • Send an Expression of Interest email to Beetle - pamsmcride@gmail.com

    • A Rider Information Pack including the itinerary and registration requirements will be sent to you in January 2017.

    • Spread the word – the more people involved, the more we can raise and the more fun we’ll have

    • Start thinking of some fundraising ideas.

    • If unable to do the ride its self, please sign up as a VIRTUAL RIDER and support Guide Dogs Victoria from your lounge chair.

    • We look forward to welcoming you to the ride of a lifetime!

    Its all moving along nicely. WEBB page could be up in the next week. Got some other assistance from MARSHANE MEDIA in Wodonga Victoria Australia. Marshane are doing us a Banner, small Stickers and large Stickers for Vehicles and at a very fair discount. Great to have their help. All the best Beetle

    Just got an Email from Jason Purser at RACEWAY motorcycles at Essendon/Niddrie offering assistance for the PAMS RIDE. Im so happy and lost for words. This idea of doing this trip to promote what Winifred Wells did, promote Royal Enfield and raise money for Guide Dogs is very close to My heart and I can now see that the 18months of having it rattle around in My head is now making ground.
