VetRide is an organization dedicated through cycling to the welfare of all service and ex-service personnel of the Australian Defence Forces. At the same time it provides something meaningful older veterans can do for their younger compatriots, consistent with closely held values, given rise to in uniform.
Our endeavours are supported widely by government agencies and by many organizations and people from all walks of life, in partnership with Victorian State Government who are supplying the major financial support for the event, to the Prime Minister who has provided a message of support (click here), and we operate under the auspices of the Vietnam Veterans Association of Australia (Victorian Branch).
We conduct an annual ride event, the Service and Sacrifice Tour being planned for 2016. It is an all points tour to Canberra, culminating in a final ride and ceremony in Canberra, on Sunday 20th March 2016.
Victorian ride starts Sunday 13th March 2016 at Seymour and ends Sunday 20th March 2016 Canberra ride via the War Memorial and the Vietnam Memorial to Old Parliament House, for the Ride Finish Ceremony.
Preference will be given to service and ex-service personnel, however the event is open to any rider who would like to support our worthwhile cause.
