Organisers of Motorcyclist Awareness Month are calling all motorcyclists and bike enthusiasts to attend a launch event at Federation Square in Melbourne this Sunday (October 1).

The event will take place from 10:30AM onwards, as an effort to promote October’s Motorcyclist Awareness Month (MAM) – an initiative of the Motorcycling Community Engagement Panel (MCEP).

“It’s a great opportunity for us to speak to the Victorian community about the ways we can keep riders safe,” MCEP delegate Brian Rix told INFO MOTO.

“Motorcyclist Awareness Month coincides with good weather for riding, so you’re gonna see more motorcyclists out enjoying the sunshine.

“But underneath that helmet is a much loved son, daughter, father or grandparent.

“So we’re pleading with people to please be careful and share the road, particularly with motorcycles, because its about keeping them safe.

“We want to show the Minister that we care about motorcycling in this community.”

Motorcyclist Awareness Month 2023

With motorcycle usage growing in popularity and motorcyclists being more vulnerable to injury than other road users, saving riders’ lives and preventing injuries remains a road safety challenge.

Motorcyclist Awareness Month in 2023 will include a launch event, digital and social media activity, community events, a stand at the MotoGP, variable message signage, ambassadors and other promotional and communication opportunities.
