We motorcyclists are very good at raising awareness and supporting a cause. Last year at this event, riders, station owners, staff and our hosts all chipped in and raised $15,000 for the Black Dog Institute for Suicide Prevention. Most of us have been affected either directly or indirectly when it comes to Suicide and having an event like this where we can have such a positive effect on each other can be life saving!!! We are continuing our support of the Black Dog Institute this year and plan on raising even more money and awareness with your help!

There is a free payphone at the Village. The nearest Mobile coverage is a 40 klm round
trip away in either BLINMAN or PARACHILNA. There is no wifi or mobile phone coverage whatsoever at
Angorichina Village.

Firstly, this event is all about supporting the local community of the Flinders Ranges and
fuel/alcohol/snacks/smokes/boxes of water and other general supplies are all available from home base if needed. We would love to see you buy your beer up here rather than bring it up from Adelaide!

The Flinders Ranges is one of the greatest remote places to ride. People forge a lifelong relationship with this place after being there just once. I have been coming here for 30 years now. Some years it’s so green you would think crops could be harvested, other years there is not a blade of ground cover to be seen.

There are hundreds of incredible tracks twisting their way through mountain ranges, gorges, riverbeds and flood plains and this also comes with its dangers mainly Kangaroos, Emu’s, Goats, Sheep, Cattle, Washouts, Blind Corners and Heavy Dust at times.

Due to the remoteness of this the Flinders Ranges and the Stations we ride on, it can be many hours before you are recovered which means you die from an injury that is normally non-life threatening if treated quickly. This is a real risk you need to consider before joining this ride event.

Infectious Disease Stuff you need to know:
We need to adhere to all government directives

You will be with 120 other moto legends that get to like their hair down now and then. If you find noise at night a distraction to your sleep, BRING EAR PLUGS. Noise complaints are generally ignored unless directed at you by Dave and Caroline who own the property.
I Highly recommend DE-WALT Disposable earplugs available from Bunnings.

91 & 98 Octane available along with Diesel for your vehicles.
If you are planning to arrive after 5pm on Tuesday, then make sure you have a full tank of fuel in your bike to avoid the line up on Wednesday Morning.
