ANZAC DAY - APRIL 25 2015 - BIKE PARKING INFORMATIONOne hundred years ago at Gallipoli the ANZAC tradition began.
Many died on both sides of that awful war. Since then, in many conflicts, Australians and New Zealanders have fought to keep our countries safe. We owe them a debt we can never repay.
On Saturday, April 25, 2015, in towns and cities across Australia and New Zealand, service men and women past and present, supported by civilians who have never known war, will join in ceremonies and parades to honour those who served to keep us free.
In Melbourne, the DAWN SERVICE at the SHRINE on St Kilda Road begins at 6 am. The Independent Riders Group is proud to have been asked to get information on motorcycle & scooter parking to riders.

The Vietnam Veterans Motorcycle Club, the RSL and Police met months ago to make sure riders had a place to park their bikes within walking distance of the SHRINE.

The DAWN SERVICE begins at 6 am. Chief Marshal Lt Col David Blackwell RFD asks that all bikes parked, engines off, by 5.45 am at the latest. 5.30 am would be better. This is a mark of respect.
After the DAWN SERVICE there is the GUNFIRE BREAKFAST and the ANZAC DAY
PARADE. You can get more information at:
ANZAC DAY is special.
The Centenary is very special.
We will remember them.
