VIDEO and PHOTOS: Support swells for Grampians Ride To Remember

More than 500 motorbike riders and pillions cruised through the Grampians on Sunday for the annual Ride to Remember.

 

The event raises money for Victoria Police Blue Ribbon Foundation projects in memory of Victoria police officers who were killed at work.

It was the 16th iteration of the ride.

Horsham Acting Superintendent Jo Janes said the Ride to Remember committee did an exceptional job arranging the ride.

“It’s to remember the sacrifices of officers who have fallen in the line of duty, but also to show serving members their working commitment is valued by the community,” she said.

“It was a 190-kilometre ride, which started at the Ararat RSL, went on a path from Ararat to Moyston, then had morning tea at Pomonal Recreation Reserve before going around Lake Fyans, Lake Lonsdale, into Halls Gap and returning via Lake Bellfield and back through Pomonal and Moyston to Ararat, finishing at Alexandra Gardens for a show and shine for car enthusiasts.”

Acting Superintendent Janes said all proceeds from the ride would be donated to East Grampians Health Service for a new ultrasound machine.
