2017 REMEMBRANCE BICYCLE RIDE PROUDLY SUPPORTING NSW POLICE LEGACY

NSW Police Legacy Remembrance Bike Ride, now in it's fifth year, sees dedicated riders participate in a gruelling 300km bike ride from the Wall of Remembrance in Sydney's Domain to the National Police Wall of Remembrance in Canberra to raise money for NSW Police Legacy.  

The 2016 ride saw 100 dedicated riders combat the changing weather conditions over the three day ride and brought in over $100,000.00 for NSW Police Legacy.


The 2017 ride will take place from the 28th - 30th of April. To register for the ride, please pay your $300 to the below bank account and complete the online registration form. Police Bank Account: BSB 815 000 Account 276 075 (S1 - from other Police Bank Accounts).

 

Cost: $300 per rider which includes riding kit and basic accommodation at Mittagong and Goulburn. The riding kit includes jersey, nicks and wind vest. 

 

Insurance: Membership with Bicycle NSW/Australia (commuter member) or Cycling Australia (recreation member) is mandatory and comes with insurance. 

 

Support vehicles: There will be 5 vans for personal bags rear escort vehicles. 

 

Riders: We will be limited to 100 riders and will have 5 pelotons. The groups will be set up later as required depending on numbers and ability. 

 

Day 1: Leave NSW Police Memorial at 6:00am and ride to Mittagong. There will be a small ceremony leaving the memorial. Our aim is to ride through the inner city with minimal traffic, that's why it's an early start. We have chosen to ride the same route as 2016 which takes us out on Parramatta Road then onto Old Canterbury Road, through to Liverpool. 

 

Day 2: Leave Mittagong at 8:00am and ride to Goulburn via Bowral, Moss Vale and Sutton Forest. We will be staying at the NSW Police Academy. Groups 1 and 2 will have a Challenge Stafe which will add 40km. 

 

Day 3: Leave Goulburn at 8:00am and ride to Canberra. This is the shortest ride of the event and usually the most enjoyable. We will meet Victoria Police at Eaglehawk. A small ceremony will be held at the National Police Memorial. 

 

Getting Home: Hopefully people can organise car-pooling back to Sydney. In 2016, many of the rider's families made the trip to watch them ride in to Canberra and then take them home. Trains and buses do also run from Canberra. 

 

What's left to do? Once you have registered your interest and registering online, you will be added to the mailing list and sent an entry form. Then set up your online fundraising account and get started! 

The Morgan Hill EducationScholarship

Morgan Hill was a Constable at the Eastern Beaches Command who took his own life after a battle with depression. The first Remembrance Bicycle Ride was created to honour his life. In memory of Morgan, a portion of the funds raised from the Remembrance Bicycle Ride go towards the Morgan Hill Scholarship. The Scholarship awards two iPads to high school students to assist with their studies. This scholarship is now in it's fourth year. The 2016 recipient of the Morgan Hill Scholarship was police legatee Joel Bryant.
