“Team Condo” will be beginning the Scrapheap Adventure Ride 2016 on Friday, 30 September.

They will leave from the Condobolin Tennis Courts at 8am and make their way to Four Corners Farm Stay at Nymagee.

There will be nine riders in the group – Jock Leighton, David Geeves, Peter Haydon, Mark Leighton, Colin Stibbard, Darren Smith, Ashley Bremner, Lochie Bremner and Andrew Braddon.

The Scrapheap Adventure Ride is a unique fundraising event which involves motorcycle enthusiasts from all over the country purchasing a bike for no more than $1,000 and doing it up for an adventure ride through the Aussie outback, all while raising money for people with Down Syndrome.

They are aiming to have fun, raise awareness and funds for Down Syndrome NSW.

“Team Condo” is already neck and neck with the more seasoned “Team Inverell”, in fundraising the highest amount of money overall, having raised over $11,000.

“People can help this great cause and keep us at the top by donating any amount,” “Team Condo” spokesperson Peter Haydon said.

“We would love to raise more than Inverell. We would like to thank all of those who have already donated – every dollar will make a difference.

“Please come down to the Condobolin Tennis Courts and see us off on the start of our adventure.”
