Magic day for first Joyride

To say car and motorcycle enthusiasts are meticulous would be an understatement. An abundance of pride was reflected in the fleet of cars and motorcycles that joined the first JOYRIDE for TRACTION fundraising event held on Saturday 12th May. Engines tuned and paintwork polished, the fleet was prepped for a cracking day and May autumn weather lived up to its reputation with magic blue skies greeting the crew.
​Motor enthusiasts are also known for their passion and the event was a chance for family and friends of TRACTION to rally around the good cause and share a great day out. It was a wonderful community get together and the TRACTION team were thrilled with the fine display of support for its mission to empower young people in need. 

Intended as an inclusive affair, all were welcomed – guys and girls, young and old, cars and motorcycles. Over 100 registered participants brought their prides and joy for a spin to the Scenic Rim with passengers and pillions in tow.

Thanks to support from Triumph Australia, Wallace Bishop and Ellaspede, 3 riders were treated to a ride for to and from the event on a Triumph Speedmaster motorcycle, a Harley Davidson and a custom Ellaspede moto.

Danny and Laura from The Power Station Coffee Co served up the brews at the Darra start point and Danielle’s home baked muffins hit the spot. Thanks also to Grove Juice Co for the refreshing OJ! A shout out also to Don from A&G Fabrications for hosting the pack at his Darra shed. 

​It was wonderful to welcome the team from Impact Homes and the JOII community as new supporters of TRACTION into the family.

Tempting as it was to continue admiring the fine fleet at Darra, the pack headed to Euan and Kaye’s place at Nindooinbah Homestead for a BBQ brunch and moto line up in the gardens by the shearing shed.

​Can’t wait for JOYRIDE 2019!
