A WORLD record attempt at a charity ride of the largest parade of Triumph motorcycles is gathering momentum from Albany to York.

Motorcycle riders will meet in Albany, Bunbury and Perth before they ride in convoy to York for the Triumph Riders WA charity event.

The group hopes to raise thousands of dollars through the Shire of York-supported event to boost the coffers of the Royal Flying Doctor WA.

Overnight camping for riders will be available for a nominal fee for the festival over the first weekend in April. Riders will assemble the bikes into the largest Triumph logo on Saturday, then roll up their sleeves on Sunday for the world record attempt on Pioneer Avon Park.

Triumph rider Stephen Morrow said a 150km event held in September attracted more than 400 ‘trumpies’ through the Triumph Riders WA Facebook page.
