Where’s Joe Rider?

“Spot Joe Rider” is a motorcycle awareness campaign being run in Eurobodalla as part of Motorcycle Awareness Week - Monday 17 October to Sunday 23 October.

Each morning this week, motorcycle riders from the local chapter of the Ulysses Motorcycle Club will be at different locations in Eurobodalla, wearing high-vis vests with the name “Joe Rider” on the back.

Joe Rider represents every motorcyclist and this campaign urges drivers to be looking out for motorcyclists on our roads. Statistics tell us that in Eurobodalla, motorcycle crashes account for 14.1 per cent of all accidents, higher than the NSW average of 12.2 per cent.

Council’s road safety officer Heidi Hanes will be at each location to hand out prizes and answer questions about the campaign. The campaign is being run in partnership with local radio station 2EC, who are telling listeners where they can go to ‘spot’ Joe Rider and win prizes.

Where and when:

  • Monday 17 October, 11am - Narooma Visitor Information Centre carpark

  • Tuesday 18 October, 10am – Moruya’s Riverside Park carpark, opposite Blue Heron cafe
