Life Changing Loyalty Ride (Mobility Dogs) 2020

Last year we reached out to Jody Wilson, GM at Mobility Assistance Dogs Trust to discuss a possible partnership with UrbanBiker.

Like so many bikers, at UrbanBiker we are crazy about dogs! We also support the Mobility Dogs vision to "enhance the lives of people living with disabilities in New Zealand communities". Mobility Dogs run some amazing programmes, such as, 'Puppies in Prison' where prisoners develop new skills and build their self-esteem while training pups to become Mobility Dogs.

As a result, and despite the challenges of Covid-19, we are delighted to announce the inaugural 'Life Changing Loyalty Ride' to take place in Wellington, October this year. Working together we plan to make this an annual motorcycle event to raise funds and awareness for Mobility Dogs, in conjunction with the Mobility Dogs national fundraising month (“Dogtober”).

“Mobility Dogs is delighted to be partnering with UrbanBiker for their ‘Life Changing Loyalty’ fundraiser. This is a fantastic initiative by Delia and Mike and one that we are very much looking forward to being involved with. Please come along for the ride!” Jody Wilson, General Manager, Mobility Dogs.

We love the wairua behind our business and hope motorbike lovers out there will too. Please join us on a ride to help enrich the lives of those who would most benefit from a mobility dog’s unconditional love, loyalty and support.

Update: 

The event is now well on track. However, if we go ahead under Covid-19 level 2, our group size will be restricted. We have therefore put together an online registrations system with all fees lodged directly with Mobility Dogs through an independent fundraising website called Everyday Hero. Registrations will be accepted on a 'first in first served' basis. 

In other news we have secured a number of amazing prizes for the event through suppliers and contacts to be raffled and auctioned on the day. These include:

  • Alpinestars T-SPS Waterproof Jacket (Mens/Womens)
  • Saint Moto Stretch Unbreakable Jeans (Mens/Womens)
  • URBANBIKER gear vouchers, and
  • A very generously donated Pounamu.

All starting off with some bbq delights and a hot cuppa from 10am. So please act now and register online to avoid disappointment on the day.
