About Dykes on Bikes Sydney
We’re Australia’s longest running female-identified motorcycle club, and one of the countries oldest LGBTQI community groups.
Interested in bikes, Mardi Gras or just want to expand your social network? Feel free to come along to one of our many events or send us an email.
Our members range from 18 to 80 years old, and we welcome any sized bike from a sporty scooter to a massive trike. P or L plate, or don’t have a bike yet? We’d love to have you along.
You don’t have to be a member of DOB Sydney to attend our most of events – but it helps! Financial members of DOB Sydney are entitled to a range of discounts from our Sponsors, as well as reduced to price tickets to our own and kindred grouped events. DOB Members are also invited to attend our member’s only camping trips, rides and weekends away.

Want to ride with us at the start of the Mardi Gras Parade? Who wouldn’t?! Dykes on Bikes Sydney have been riding in the Sydney Mardi Gras Parade since 1988. Imagine 200 bikes roaring, 300 sweaty, excited dykes and a crowd of thousands waiting to see you ride past!

Dykes on Bikes Sydney isn’t all just about riding and having fun, we have a serious side too. Every year we raise money from our events to donate to charities chosen by our members which help the GLBTQI community or other causes our members support. Our Charities for 2018-19 are The Gay and Lesbian Rights Lobby and Wires (Inner West Volunteers).
We also take part in events like The Pink Ribbon Ride to raise fund for Breast Cancer Research and lots of members attend different Black Dog Rides for mental health.
Each December we do an annual Toy Run to the RSPCA in in Yagoona donating much needed food, medical supplies and toys towards their community programs assisting people with pets in relation to Aged Care, Domestic Violence and Homelessness.
