The Blessing of the Bikes is a global tradition where motorcyclists gather to pay their respects to fallen riders and if they choose, be blessed with holly water by one of our own motorcycle Chaplin’s in the hope that it will bring you and your pillion safety on the roads.
Blessing of the Bikes is an Australian Trade Mark event owned and run by Zaidee’s Rainbow Foundation. To add to the atmosphere, there will be a number of motorcycle related stalls, as well as live entertainment in the lead up to the ceremony and speeches by a range of presenters. The aim is for everyone to enjoy the day as one very large motorcycle community no matter what brand of motorcycle you ride.
Zaidee’s Rainbow Foundation aim is to drive national projects and programs to promote and educate the wider community about the importance of organ and tissue donation to save and improve more lives via organ and tissue transplants. In memory of Zaidee Turner who at the age of 7 years and 22 days died in 2004 at the Royal Children’s Hospitals in Melbourne and then donated her organs and tissues to 7 people. 6 children and a middle-aged Mum. www.zaidee.org
