  • Scrapheap Adventure Ride

    The destination for the fifth Scrapheap Adventure Ride has been announced so its time to start planning your trip and start building your bike!

    This unique event 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 kids with Down Syndrome.

    In just four years the event has raised an incredible $220,000 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 Nymboida in northern NSW, about 40km south of Grafton, where we will be from the 19th to the 21st of September.

    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.
