MARI was established by St Vincent’s Hospital in Sydney to support the long-term physical injuries, and social and emotional problems encountered by motorcycle crash victims.
Since then, the Dr Wings Bike Force was established to do the volunteer work of MARI (Riders Caring For Riders Programme) throughout Australian hospitals.
Club president Alan Peters says riders on all types of bikes, not just BMWs, are invited to attend the rally.
He says the rally provides an opportunity to “enjoy a relaxed ride” in some beautiful NSW countryside.
“The locals are looking forward to the Far Cairn Rally as much as we are. Please remember we will be the guests of the Tottenham community – at all times please respect the township, its speed limits, showground property and the community amenities.”
Tottenham is about 120km north of Condobolin, 120km west of Dubbo and the Centre Cairn monument is 33km out of town near Five Ways.
The town is accessible by sealed roads, as well as dirt roads for adventure riders, from several directions.
There is limited accommodation available at the Tottenham Hotel, but plenty of camping at the racecourse about 3km from the town’s centre. It features a grassy paddock with hot showers and some under-cover space.
Entry fee is $25 which includes a badge and Sunday breakfast. Commemorative t-shirts are available for $25.
