RideADV presents 5 magnificent days of NSW great dividing range riding at its very best. This ride is to remember the brave men and women that have made the ultimate sacrifice for our community. The ride is open to serving and retired members (sworn and unsworn), all other friends, family, proud supporters of policing and the general public. The ride is not only a wonderful commemoration of service and sacrifice, but also a fantastic social event for enthusiastic adventure motorcyclists across Australia, in celebration of the Police Family.
