2020 IBA Australia Memorial Rides & IBA Wilcannia Memorial Ceremony

Following the success of the Inaugural Memorial Ceremony and dedication last year, that time has rolled around again.

Below are the dates within which all IBA Australia Memorial Rides must be completed to be certified as an IBA Memorial Ride.
Also here are the details of the short ceremony to be held at the Netallie Memorial site.

This year we are NOT asking for Rider Registration with Ride Master, but to be certified, ALL rides must fulfil the submission rules
of the usual IBA certified rides.

Dates for ALL Memorial Rides to be completed:

From September 11th to September 28th 2020 (inclusive)

– rides to be completed within these dates if participants wish to receive an IBA Australia Memorial Ride Certificate and IBA Australia Memorial Patch.

Your Memorial Ride may be conducted anywhere within Australia.

You may wish to include attendance at the Ceremony within your Certified ride.

Everyone is welcome to attend the Ceremony – whether doing a certified ride or not.

Thank you Nico. Solid work for the greater community mate. Well done.

26th should see me able to escape a rental cleanup and by then we will have a half finished house.
It would be great to use the last half of an oil change I did for this event last year.

Ive never ever seen any 10k oil change last sooooo long.
Tyres from 2019 fresh as.

13:00... now I'm putting that in black marker on the screen. 13:00 is the BE There time.
Missed by that much last year.

Gday Mick.
Bucket list over flow and empty out pretty regular so it is what its had to be.
I found another photo from your trip out the Tablelands Hwy, NT.

It would appear that NSW is on the verge of shutting down again for non-essential travel, so there may be a fly in the ointment for the memorial run. Last time we were good for reasonably brief local trips under the guise of stress relief and exercise, but travelling hundreds of km too far from home was a big problem for us ACT blokes. I was planning an isolated camping run anyway, rather than risk a motel or hotel or jam-packed campground. Gotta love a stretcher tent! Even that may be problematic. And so we wait. And wait some more.
