Black Dog Ride – 2016


Gold Coast Black Dog Ride 2016 was a huge success with over 370 bikes and 432 registered riders and pillions. Thank you to everyone who participated. The ride started at Shark Leathers with Check-Ins from 7:30am, Ash from Rebel FM was there for our entertainment, Breakfast from the Lions club and the Bean Green Coffee Machine for coffee!

The police turned up at departure time and guided us out of the Gold Coast and over Beechmont. Then continuing on through Canungra and then around to the Bearded Dragon, North Tamborine.

At the Bearded Dragon everyone arrived safely and we all had a beautiful lunch all ready for us to enjoy. Overall it was an amazing day and gorgeous weather and everyone had a fantastic time.


Now some big thank yous!
