Fun - Freedom - Friendship
Melbourne Dykes On Bikes is an incorporated association, operating not for profit registered with Consumer Affairs Victoria. We are an official chapter of Dykes On Bikes San Francisco Womens Motorcycle Contingent and are proud to be part of this world-wide motorcycling sisterhood.
We ride all sizes and types of bikes to all sorts of places. We can allocate an experienced rider to newer riders in a buddy system to help create a safer riding environment and build confidence.
