Sgt Graeme Reeves says the weekend is “all about information and education”.
It continues the Operation North Upright program Nerang Police Station has been running for the past few years with regular one-day events.
Sgt Reeves says the previous events have been well supported by Gold Coast district motorcycle clubs.
“We will be advertising for community members, especially those who are keen motorcycle enthusiasts, to drop in during their ride where attending emergency personnel can offer information around safe riding practices and legislation when riding on Queensland roads,” he says.
There will also be a free raffle for all who attend with the following prizes: Axo, Scorpion and RJays motorcycle boots; Five and RJays motorcycle gloves; Motul chain cleaning kit; and Royal Enfeild t-shirt.
The raffle will be drawn at the Nerang Police Station on August 27th.
(Winners will be able to exchange prizes for the proper size boots or gloves at the dealer.)
There will also be a free sausage sizzle and bottles of water for all riders.
Sgt Reeves has invited motorcycle clubs to attend and “assist in promoting Road Safety Week over this weekend to your club members”.
