Road Broadford Ride Days

Our Road Broadford Ride Days are designed to provide road riders and recreational track riders on solo bikes only (not National licensed Racers, Juniors or Sidecars) with the opportunity to come along and enjoy the experience of riding a road circuit under the safe direction of a Clerk of Course, 3 Track Marshals and paramedical services.

Sign-on for the day commences at approximately 7.30am and the first track sessions should commence at approximately 9.00am after the Rider Briefing.

All riders must attend the Rider Briefing.  The Clerk of Course will establish groups based on the riders that have signed on (i.e. Novice, Intermediate, Advanced) and then, depending on the number of groups, sessions will generally be of 15-20 minutes duration.

We find that 15 minutes is sufficient so that fatigue doesn’t set in too early in the day.  We will stop for a lunch break somewhere between 12.00 and 1.00pm and then resume sessions with the last session finishing at approximately 4.00pm.

These Road Broadford Ride Days are quite different and separate to our Broadford Race Practice Days which are scheduled for riders to have race practice immediately prior to a Club’s Race Meeting (these Race Practice Days are not suitable for the general road rider).

Although we do not have bike Scrutineering at a Ride Day it is expected that your bike be in a sound and roadworthy condition otherwise the Clerk of Course will ask that you leave the Circuit until the bike is rectified.  Any glass on your bike (i.e. mirrors, headlight) should be taped over.

You will need to have full leathers (two piece is acceptable so long as they zip together and there is no skin showing), back brace, ASA approved helmet, leather riding boots and gloves.  If you have a current MA Recreational Licence there is no further cost to you other than the cost of the ride day, i.e $150.00.

Should you not have a current MA Recreational Licence then you would need to purchase a Recreational Licence which can be provided on the day.  The cost of a Day Recreational Licence is $30.00 or an Annual Recreational Licence is $130.00.

There is no need to pre-book.

Ricondi have graciously given MV up to four leather suits that can be available for hire at Road Broadford Ride Days throughout the year at the State Motorcycle Sports Complex. To pre-book leathers, please contact Ann-Marie Upton at broadfordadmin@motorcyclingvic.com.au or phone (03) 5784 4163.
