The ride involves enthusiasts from all over the country purchasing a motorbike for no more than $1000 and doing it up for an adventure ride through the bush, while raising money for kids with Down Syndrome.

In four years, the ride has raised an incredible $220,000 for Down Syndrome NSW.

Anthony and four mates started the ride at Vacy and arrived at their destination of Nymboida, near Grafton, last Friday after riding through Gloucester and Walcha.

Anthony’s team, The Hillbillies, was made up of a group of like-minded individuals into fooling about with old (and new) bikes and having fun.

His bike was a 1984 1000cc BMW K100RS with a KLX650 front end, air cleaner courtesy of a Massey Fergusson tractor, handmade checker-plate fairing and a klaxon horn.
