Pretty in pink: Sue Hart, Cheyenne Campbell and Mel Campbell joined Saturday’s festivities. Raising awareness: Gerry van Hacher, Mike Holmes, Mick Simpson, Earl Johns, Gwen van Hacher and Graham Rosenbers got their engines revving to raise awareness for breast cancer.
Strike a pose: The bright pink dress code added to the fun for Shae Bowditch, Alysoun Learmont, Dan Barltrop, Judy Lockwood and Jacob Langbairn.
You don’t see ‘that’ everyday: Lisa Sutherland and Sue Turner vamp up their ride for Saturday’s annual breast cancer awareness raising trek from Port Macquarie to Long Flat.
Pinkwas the colour of choice when more than 130 motorbikes made their way from Port Macquarie to Long Flat on Saturday for the eighth Pink Ribbon Ride.
The revving of engines was designed to generate awareness of the early detection of breast cancer.
Survivor and ride organiser Suzanne Naylor was diagnosed almost 10 years ago and was left with a memory that will last a lifetime.
“The ride has been happening since 2008, which was the year I was first diagnosed with it and I’ve been organising the event for the last four years and think it’s fantastic,” she said.
“When I was diagnosed it was really frightening … you find yourself in a fog so the main aim of this ride is to highlight the importance of women getting themselves checked as early as possible.
“An early diagnosis helps with recovery and lessens the impact of treatment.”
Mrs Naylor said the support of local businesses was vital to the success of the day.
“I also want to give a big thank you to the hogs who did the marshalling at intersections where we didn’t have the right of way,” Mrs Naylor said.
“That’s what really kept us all together.”
