EOI: Champion’s Ride Days 2020

Expressions of Interest

Club member, Tony Jones, is planning on doing a Champion’s Ride Day at Broadford Raceway sometime in 2020.

Ride days are an awesome way to enjoy your bike, without worrying about cars, trucks and speed cameras. Surrounded by like-minded enthusiasts, ride days are a safe and professional way to have the best fun on two wheels!

All you need is:

  • Full leathers, motorcycle boots, gloves and a full face helmet (or hire on the day for $75)
  • A bike with good tyres and brakes, nothing leaking or falling off, and no gear racks (or hire a bike on the day, from $395)

Sessions are graded (based on your speed and experience) into Starter, Intermediate, Intermediate-Fast, and Advanced groups.

Cost: $180 (or half price if this is your first time, and you go with a mate who’s done it before!) + $30 for a Motorcycling Australia Recreational day licence

Optional extras: Gear hire $75. Bike hire from $395. Photo package $55.
