Liverpool Plains Shire Council (LPSC) Deputy Mayor, Councillor Doug Hawkins, has welcomed the news that the Pigs ‘n Pines Bike Run and Rally will return to Spring Ridge in 2018, to be held March 16 to 18.
“The Pigs ‘n Pines event is a fundraiser for Kids with Cancer, initiated by Bikers Australia and supported by the Royal Hotel Spring Ridge, Liverpool Plains Shire Council and the Spring Ridge Community,”
“Their inaugural event held in March this year was a huge success raising $11,000 for a really good cause,” he said.
Councillor Hawkins said the planning for the 2018 event is already underway with the organisers expecting the event to grow following the announcement that the Western Ranges Motorcycles and Indian Powersports groups are coming on board.
“A highlight of all bike rallies is The Show and Shine which gives motorbike enthusiasts a chance to show off their pride and joys and often encourages new enthusiasts to follow their dreams and become part of the fun,” Councillor Hawkins said.
“One of the great things about events such as the Pigs ’n Pines Run is that they provide fun and entertainment and are real family affairs, attended by young and old.
“There will be family entertainment all weekend, musical entertainment as well as the fun games that everyone enjoyed so much in 2017,” he continued.
“The Bikers also challenge the local Cricket team for a match. The Bikers won in 2017 but the Spring Ridge team will be looking to even the score in 2018.
“A big part of the atmosphere is the fact that camping is available for the duration of the event allowing families to enjoy the whole weekend. There will be a band and bar facilities, food and market stalls available too,” he said.
“Anyone interested in having a stall at the 2018 event should contact Ceejay at Bikers Australia on 0459 614 274 or email firstname.lastname@example.org for more information or to book a site,” he continued.
“LPSC is proud to support this event and congratulates both Bikers Australia and the Spring Ridge community for their enthusiasm and partnership towards making this event a resounding success,” Councillor Hawkins concluded.
