Arthur Grady Ride and Display Fremantle Heritage Festival – Saturday 1 June 2013

The Arthur Grady Ride and Display is on again this year. It is rapidly becoming an extremely popular motorcycling event in Western Austrelaia Last year saw around 120 bikes from all eras taking part and lots of interest from the general public.
The event celebrates the feats of Arthur Grady who in 1924 became the first person to ride a motorcycle around Australia. He set off from the Fremantle Town Hall and returning five months later to a rousing reception and a place in the history books.

The day will feature a running replica of the bike Arthur rode on his epic adventure as well as lots of information and pictures of his ride. The day will also feature a huge display of veteran and vintage bikes courtesy of the Vintage Motorcycle Club of WA.
The event is open to all motorcycles from eras. I would encourage you all to take part in what is rapidly becoming one of WA’s great motorcycle gatherings.
The order of the Day will be:
• Assemble Kings Square Fremantle from 0900 -1030 (There will be three main sections in the Square Pre 1931, 1931 – 1988 and 1988 – present)
• Ride around Fremantle 1100 – 1130
• Static Display 1130 – 1400
• BBQ Lunch from 1130
• Depart Kings Square 1400

Any one bringing bikes on trailers, in vans or utes that will not be ridden on the day will need to notify me for drop off and parking instructions.

This is a great day for celebrating Western Australia’s rich motorcycling heritage see you there!
