A SPECTACLE of more than 600 motorbikes, decorated with Christmas cheer, will roar into the Brolga Theatre car park early on Sunday morning.

The Fraser Coast Ulysses Club will hold its annual charity ride in Maryborough and will start congregating at 7.30am, before leaving at 9.30am and finishing at Kondari Resort in Hervey Bay.

Ride co-ordinator Heather Hagar said entry cost a gold coin donation.

"Anyone who owns a motorbike or three-wheeler is welcome to come along," Ms Hagar said.

"We have some great prizes for our raffles and people in both Maryborough and Hervey Bay have been generous with donations."

Raffle prizes include bike gear from Maryborough's Motoworx Motorcycles, Fraser Island cruises and tours and vouchers from Under The Gun Tattoo and Piercing.

Ms Hagar said money raised would go to StandBy, which supported people bereaved by suicide and to help the We Care 2 food van.

"Both charities will be catering the event," she said.

"StandBy will offer coffee, tea and brekkie at the Brolga and We Care 2 will hold a sausage sizzle at the Kondari," she said.

For raffle tickets can be pre-purchased - phone Heather Hagar on 0404 017 433.

The route

Under police escort from the Maryborough traffic branch, riders will leave the Brolga at 9.30am, travel Lennox St to Woodstock, right onto Saltwater Ck Rd.

They will follow the Maryborough-Hervey Bay Rd, turn left into Tooth St, then right into Martin St and right onto The Esplanade, up to Elizabeth St and finish at the Kondari Resort.
