This departure point, and the arrival area, are a mixture of solid and grassed areas, please ensure you have a side stand support (puck) with you.
Members must form up early, please follow the Marshalls’ instructions and form rows as directed so that we can fit the anticipated number of bikes into the designated area.

The Parade will be under Victoria Police control and it is IMPORTANT that we do not exceed 2 lanes wide to allow for police or emergency vehicles to use the remainder of road should that be necessary.
