Riders who want to organise their own ride-to-work-week events can use the official website.
NSW riders in gear
Meanwhile, the MCC of NSW is gearing up for its annual Motorcycle Awareness Month with the theme “Look out for Motorcycles”.
Spokeswoman Liz Haywood says their aim is to “be a voice to maintain and improve legislation, regulations and campaigns to keep motorcyclists’ safe on our roads”.
The launch ride from Berowra to Cessnock on October 8 will raise money for MARI – a charity that offers services to motorcyclists admitted to emergency departments with practical post-accident help to sort out insurances, legals, and to reduce further problems caused by immobility, and physical and emotional pain.
MCC of NSW treasurer Steve Pearce says the large group of motorcycles on local roads would help the community to see motorcyclists as “fun-loving people who enjoy life and care about road safety”.
“We want drivers to look twice for us on the road, so hopefully this will put us front of mind and raise funds for MARI.”
Riders can do the full 145km ride from Berowra RSL Club at 9.30am, through Calga, then Central Mangrove to Kulnura, or join the group at Wollombi for the final leg to Cessnock.
There will be a sausage sizzle at Cessnock together with displays from various motorcycle clubs such as Classic Motorcycle Club, Australian Postie Bike, and Ulysses Club.
A host of other events will be staged during the NSW Motorcycle Awareness Month as well as advertising on prime-time Triple M radio programs.
