There is still time to register for this year’s Moreton Bay Red Ride, which will raise awareness of domestic and family violence and funds for a DV shelter on May 14.

The ride, in its second year, starts at Woodford Showgrounds and travels to the Redcliffe peninsula, before heading through Strathpine to Samford, Dayboro and Mt Mee back to Woodford where it culminates in a car show ‘n’ shine event with entertainment, bucking bull, food trucks, best dressed competition and even an inflatable pub at the showgrounds.

The event is the brainchild of Moreton Bay Regional Councillor Tony Latter and is being organised in partnership with Rotary Caboolture.

Rotary Club of Caboolture representative Chris Sharp says there will be a diverse range of interesting vehicles from modern muscle cars all the way back through motoring history to veteran and vintage cars.

“The event will also welcome the public to view the collection of Motorbikes and Cars while enjoying some great live music and varied catering from the Food Trucks or our unique inflatable pub. It will be quite an afternoon out,” Chris says.

The ride begins at 8am. Registration is $25 per rider, $15 to enter your car in the show ‘n’ shine and $10 for spectators attending the post-ride event at Woodford Showgrounds.

Chris is asking riders, motoring enthusiasts and spectators to bring their old mobile phones and drop them into collection boxes for the DV Safe Phones program.

The event is sponsored by Caboolture Sports Club, Moreton Bay Regional Council, Richardson & Wrench Caboolture and 101.5FM - Moreton Bays Own Radio Station.

Anyone else interested in sponsoring the event can email [email protected]
