Ahead of the 5th Annual Ride for Red, Salt 106.5’s Fee caught up with ride organiser Gary Blake, and The Gronks Social Riders Club, which started this initiative to raise much-needed funds to support research for the cure of cancer
On April 20, 2016, Ron Norman lost his battle to brain cancer. Ron, or “Red” as he was known by his family and friends, was a typically normal Aussie bloke with a heart of gold. Red’s passion was the love of his family and his love for his motorbikes. It is in his name and memory that the Ride for Red was started.
This year’s ride will be held on the October long weekend (Saturday 2 October) meeting at the Big Fish Caltex Service Station on Pumicestone Road, Caboolture, for a debriefing at 8.30am. For more information about the Ride for Red, contact Gary Blake on 0407 570 651.

Organiser Gary Blake (Blakey) said, “It will be the same as previous years – free, no registration fee – but we encourage people to purchase raffle tickets along the way and join in the raffles and auctions at the last stop”.
“The Ride for Red is a fun day and is getting bigger and bigger each year. Everyone has been touched by this horrendous illness and what better way to help than to jump on your bike, go for a ride, buy some raffle tickets and have fun.” Blakey said.
