A rally on the Australia Day long weekend in 2012, to be held in Victoria’s picturesque north-east with plenty to see and do
The Australian Riders’ Division, a non-competitive arm of Motorcycling Australia, will be holding a Celebration of Women’s Motorcycling (CWM) Rally from January 27-29, 2012.
The event, to be held in Yackandandah (Vic), will aim to recognise the contribution of women to Australia’s motorcycling history.
It’s anticipated the event will be well subscribed, so attendees are encouraged to book their accommodation in the area as early as possible. Also, attendees are being asked to make contact and register with the Australian Riders’ Division as soon as possible.
There are many great places to stay in the town and surrounding area -- and in the event the hotels, motels and B&Bs book out, the town of Beechworth is only a short ride away.
For riders wishing to explore, there will be long and short guided rides through the local countryside on January 28, followed by a ‘Show and Shine’ competition.
That night, a spit roast dinner will be held at the Yackandandah Hotel, costing $25 per head. Prize giving will also take place from 7:00pm, with local three-piece band Twisted Creek providing the evening’s entertainment.
All attendees are asked to submit in advance, or bring to the event, one or more motorcycle photographs of themselves, their mothers, daughters, grandmothers, friends or just women on motorcycles.
A name or short history with each picture would be a great help. To submit in advance, please send scans to firstname.lastname@example.org.
The event is also open to partners, relatives and friends of attendees.
For more information and registration contact the Australian Riders’ Division, tel (03) 9684 0500.
