Adventure bike riders will soon be rolling through Cowra after spending times in the Southern Tablelands, Snowy Mountains, the NSW South Coast and other parts of the Central NSW to help kids in need and support regional communities.

The Variety Adventure Ride is a six-day motorcycle event departing from Goulburn on Sunday 14 March 2021.

The riders will be in Cowra on Thursday 18 March, leaving Yass that morning as they travel to Bathurst, via Cowra.

Participants in the Variety Adventure Ride commit to raising at least $2,000 to take part in the road trip with funds raised to help Variety - the Children's Charity supporting children who are sick, disadvantaged or living with special needs across NSW and the ACT.

The ride itself is a celebration of the group's completed fundraising efforts and also brings business into regional towns through accommodation, meals, fuel and more for the riders.

Variety NSW/ACT Acting General Manager David Small said riders were preparing for a trip which explores regions and builds new friendships.

"The Adventure Ride is not a race or a contest of any kind - it's an adventure exploring the countryside by motorbike," said David.

"Riders do all their fundraising before hitting the road - helping kids and their families who are doing it tough and providing much needed support to regional communities.

"The Variety Adventure Ride also benefits the towns it passes through, with more than $5,000 generally spent on local services and facilities in each town the group stops at.

"It's a terrific way to help two groups of people at once - kids and businesses who all deserve a fair go."

The Variety Adventure Ride is proudly supported by Pickles, long-term supporters of Variety motoring events, including the iconic Bash.

Pickles National Manager - Industrial, Nick Johnson is thrilled that Pickles is again supporting Variety Adventure Ride.

"The Variety Adventure Ride is a terrific adventure with people who enjoy touring the countryside while making a real difference for others - Pickles is very proud to be part of this great event," Nick said.
