The Motorcycle Riders Association of ACT holds regular events to raise the profile of motorcycling.
LATE NOTICE OF ROADWORKS at OLD PARLIAMENT HOUSE
We received notice today that the West End of the carpark and road in front of Old Parliament House may still be closed on Saturday for continuing roadworks. This will limit the parking spots for bikes and also change the Toy Run route when departing and returning.
We will need volunteers for parking marshals from about 8.30am on Saturday to assist in directing bikes to parking locations. Volunteers will require fluorescent vests to stand out. Please report to the MRA ACT Marquee if you can assist.
As the NCA have not yet confirmed we will have the usual access on Saturday, we advise riders there may be last minute changes when you arrive for the Toy Run. We request that if the road changes are still in force, you please heed the directions of the Marshals who will show you where to park and also form up for the safety and convenience of participants, officials and spectators.
Please pass this message on to all riders who may be attending. Take time to consider alternate parking sites which are shown on the map below.
2016 Annual Toy Run – Saturday 10th December 2016
Donate new toys, nonperishable food & cash Supporting the Salvation Army and St John’s Care
The annual Toy Run marks 36 years of fundraising by the motorcycling community to aid those less fortunate during the festive season, and has raised tens of thousands of dollars in cash and gifts over the years.
Over 1,000 bikes and riders are expected to gather at Old Parliament House on Saturday 10th December from 08:00am for breakfast in the lead up to the actual ride-out procession, which commences at 10:00am.
Riders are invited to dress up for the ride and sponsorship is provided to reward them for the best decorated bike, rider and pillion. To add to the fun of the morning, we have two perpetual trophies: one is awarded to the club with the biggest attendance and the other to the largest corporate group entry.
