Taken from PAMSMCRide:

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 up to 28 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 like-minded 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.
