The Boundary 500 Club Santa Ride, one of the largest motorcycle charity events in the UK, is set to return on Saturday 18 November 2023.
Hundreds of Santa-clad bikers will take to the streets of Teesside to raise money for Zoë’s Baby Hospice.
The ride starts at Thornaby Town Centre and ends at Kirkleatham Walled Garden, with a route that takes in Middlesbrough and Stockton. Riders will stop at various checkpoints along the way to collect donations from the public.
The event is open to all motorcycles, regardless of make or model. All riders must be dressed as Santa Claus, and their bikes must be decorated in festive attire.
The Boundary 500 Club Santa Ride has raised over £840,000 for charities since it was first held in 2006. Organisers are hoping to raise even more money this year to support the vital work of Zoë’s Baby Hospice.
