Riders around Australia are invited to attend the Ride 4 Our Fallen Riders event next Sunday (24 June 2018) in Brisbane or organise their own ride to honour the memory of the 211 motorbike riders killed on Australian roads in 2017.
The event ends with a candlelight vigil for the 211 riders killed In 2017 with a tribute slide show and a minute’s silence for all 6102 riders killed on Australian roads from 1989 to 2017.
The first annual Ride 4 Our Fallen Riders attracted about 70 bikes and 70 cars.
“We did not do any fundraising last year; I funded everything for the tribute etc,” Nikki-Anne says.
“It was such a great day.
“Thanks to everyone that came out to honour the lives lost and also to raise awareness for motorbike safety and the importance of change to rider safety and not accepting ‘I’m sorry I didn’t see him/her’ as an excuse for killing riders.”
