Bridge To Bridge Ride Series 2014 TK Memorial Ride

Tickets

RideADV.com.au is proud to announce the next ride in the Yamaha Australia and Adventure Moto supported “B2B” (Bridge to Bridge) series. After the success of the 2014 Tony Kirby memorial B2B from Sydney to Brisbane and the 2016 Melbourne to Sydney B2B both paying homage to the father of ADV in Australia, we are ready to announce the next B2B ride. The 2014 and 2016 B2B’s were both great rides and is still talked about by many of our RideADV customers as the best ADV rides they have ever experienced.

So in keeping with our mission of providing great value rides for our friends and customers and meeting the requests of the mob… B2B #3, Brisbane to Sydney (Story bridge to Sydney Harbour bridge) will be seven and a half days of the best riding the east coast of Qld and NSW have to offer. The route will feature new track all throughout the week, including new overnight locations

Plan for Pub, Motel and/or camping style accommodation. It is a full navigation event with a luggage/gear truck and the usual array of fully equipped support vehicles with experienced drivers.

Hell, it’s still Your Ride Your Adventure…

We just want to help you enjoy it and do our best to keep you on track and safe home.
Routes will be planned for each day with a “Standard” route suitable for larger bikes and those riders wanting spectacular scenery but with a less technical feel; and of course a “Special” more technical route suitable for riders on smaller bore bikes or competent riders on larger bore bikes and those generally wanting a little more spice on the ride. With all RideADV rides, you can change between standard and special routes each night if you wish, just to make it interesting or to give you some breathing space.

Both routes will have sweep crew and vehicle support.
So come and join us for the 2018 B2B featuring the best of the Qld and NSW, the Great Dividing Range, there will be ocean views, maybe some of the central west NSW… and finishing under the iconic Coat Hanger… this ride has it all.
