Forget dashing through the snow this festive season, registrations are now open for Variety – the Children’s Charity NSW/ACT 8th annual Postie Bike Dash.

The six-day ride will take participants dashing through the NSW bush and countryside, stopping at rural towns and schools along the scenic route.

The 2022 Dash will begin in Mudgee on Sunday 6 March and travel off the beaten track for over 1400km before returning to Mudgee on Friday 11 March.

Variety NSW/ACT CEO Vanessa Barry said the boutique event has grown in popularity since ‘Dashers’ first hit the road in 2014.

“The Postie Bike Dash is a unique event that brings together riders of all ages – from their early 20s through to their late 70s – and people from all walks of life,” she said.

“They all may begin the event as strangers, but everyone crosses the finish line as friends having shared an incredible six days of adventures together.”

The event is open to anyone over 18 with a roadworthy, registered Honda CT110 or Honda NBC110 motorcycle.

Participants are required to raise at least $2000 with the funds helping to support children in NSW and the ACT who are sick, experiencing disadvantage or living with a disability.

Vanessa said Variety will provide grants to five schools along the route, giving Dashers the opportunity to see the difference made by their fundraising efforts.

“Variety impacted the lives of more than 28,500 kids last year but we are only able to do our vital work thanks to the generosity of our incredible supporters, including those who take part in our motoring events,” she said.

“The Dash will visit a number of small, remote schools and everyone will have the chance to see our grants in action and discover just how valuable the support is to these regional communities.”

The Variety Postie Bike Dash is proudly supported by First National Real Estate and Tamex Transport with logistical support from Australia Post.

David Doherty, a Principal of First National Real Estate Tamworth who has taken part in all seven Dashes, said he looks forward to the event each year.

“It is so fulfilling to be involved with an organisation that genuinely makes a difference and helps to change people’s lives – it is something that I would recommend for everyone to try.”
