The form of this initiative will be a high profile motorcycle ride from Hornsby to Cessnock via Wollumbi ( approx. 145 km ).

 

This route was selected as it covers some parts of the main weekend 'loops' used by recreational riders.

    After the success on our stand at the Sydney International Motor Cycle and Scooter Show in 2013 we have been flat out. So much has happened as well as a huge amount of interest in the trips we do and how individuals and businesses can support us or make a donation.

In 2013 we held stage one, a ride to Tottenham via Forbes a total of 1250K's round trip in three days, including being at Tottenham event held by BMW Touring Club of NSW in the Racecourse.

On 26th April 2014 stage two of our trips started in Sydney and went to Darwin via South Australia returning home via Out Back QLD and MSW.

On the 9th May 2015 the third stage was completed from Sydney to Moree, then to Charters Towers, Townsville & Cairns, before running back down the coast stopping at all the major centre's to the Qld Border, then Tamworth and home.

On the 20th, 21st & 22nd November we did the Sydney Motorcycle & Scooter Show at Homebush with Maurice Blackburn Lawyers. On their stand we promoted the MARI initiative , The Dr Wings Bike Force connection and the support that Maurice Blackburn Lawyers gives to the initiative going forward. It was all about road safety and wearing a good helmet. On the stand we had a brand new helmet for 2016 the VOZZ Helmet. Australian Owned and Designed. It is a real trail Blazer helmet with no Chin Strap for added safety. For more information look at helmets on www.motorcyclegear.com.au site.

On the 8th June 2016 stage four , where we held seminars with both Motorcyclists and hospital staff in the major trauma centre's in Melbourne.

In early 2017 stage five, we will be holding seminars in NSW, just finalising plans now.

We will be hoping to add an additional sixth leg through NSW / Victoria finishing at the South Australian border.

                        At this time though we are trying to finalise the 6th leg hoping to start in April / May 2017.

The Dr Wings Bike Force Team relies on donations to enable them to continue assisting motorcyclists that have been involved in an accident.

                         To make a support donation payment towards the continued work of the DR WINGS BIKE FORCE getting the M.A.R.I program to more Hospitals throughout Australia Totally funded by the public.

    After a very successful event in 2012 into 2013, we commenced the 2014 Ride on 26th April 2014. 

   The trip stared in Sydney and ran over a grueling 12,500 + kilometers, our motor cyclists trekked over Australia passing through four states and one territory over six and a half weeks, returning home to the Central Coast on around the 15th June 2014.

    Since this we have completed our Queensland leg from Moree to Cairns and stopping at Hospitals all the way down the coast line to the Gold Coast NSW border.

About Us

              The "DR Wings Bike Force" are based on the Central Coast and in Sydney. The Initiative was formed from members of the MARI team based at St Vincent's Hospital Darlinghurst Sydney.The team consists of members from the Sydney Motorcycle Club, BMW Touring Club of NSW also Members of the Ulysses Club & lastly the Committee For Safer Motorcycle Routes in the Hunter. Some of them have been involved first hand with motor cycle accidents and know exactly what a patient is going through or has cared for one who has been there before.
