The Grampians Ride to Remember brings the community together each year to ride their motorcycles through the Grampians region to raise money for the Victoria Police Blue Ribbon Foundation, with more than 300 people joining the ride each year to raise money for this worthy cause.

Commencing in Barkly St, Ararat at 9am sharp, the ride travels on all sealed roads through the rural countryside within the Ararat Rural City and Pyrenees Shire Council municipalities, taking in the roads along the edges of the magnificent Grampians National Park and traveling through the towns of Willaura, Wickliffe, and with a stop at Lake Bolac for a 45 minute Morning Tea.

This then continues onto Streatham and Eurambeen Rd, and then turns onto the Western Highway through to Buangor, before heading back via Warrak to Ararat for a relaxing BBQ in the Alexandra Gardens.

The Ride features an opportunity to take in some spectacular scenery; including both the Challicum Hills and Ararat Wind Farms.

Your registration includes BBQ Lunch, show-bag with commemorative badge plus complimentary bottled water at the finish of the Ride.

The event acknowledges and pays respect to Victorian Police officers who are killed in active duty and money raised will be donated to the Blue Ribbon Foundation to fund medical equipment at Ararat Hospital.
