Riding for the Disabled helps people with all kinds of disabilities from Down Syndrome to Post Traumatic Shock and every thing else. For years kids have had to ride in the blazing saddles under a 40degree sun. Not anymore, local support and donations have helped the Central Australian RDA centre become the envy of Australia with this magnificent undercover riding facility.
Our sponsored horse “Harley” is a favourite amongst the kids, he has personality and likes to play and seems to like his work. A handful of members attended the opening ceremony and stayed for cake and nibbles. Ulysses Club also sponsor a horse bearing it’s name thus it is excellent to see the Motorcycle Clubs of Alice Springs getting behind this worthwhile local cause.

A Big New Shed
This years Toy Run gathered at the new starting point at the Alice Springs Golf Club. So many bikes of all shapes and sizes showed off their Christmas Bling as they led Big Al Santa astride a Honda Goldwing ridden by our oldest member Neverready. Thanks for the loan Kerry Noll it made for a comfortable posterior posie for the big fella in the 40 odd degree heat. T’was lucky I had studied the route as it was thrown on me last minute to lead the parade. The trip was cut in half this year expecting the full fury of the sun to be upon us but it was actually reasonably pleasant with the wind providing relief. The townsfolk were also cheery today as the entourage progressed through Hartley Street and Gregory Terrace then bacdk to the Golf Club for a refreshment.
A big Thanks for Coming to the Motorcycling Community of Alice Springs.
