Mardi Gras 

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!

I cant believe I put off riding with you guys in the Parade for so long! That was the best Mardi Gras of my life!

To read up on our Parade information or see what’s happening during Mardi Gras just visit our Mardi Gras info page here


Rides, parties, trivia nights, weekends away and even High Tea! DOB Sydney has something for everyone. Everyone is invited to our community events (like our Bike and Tattoo Show and Black and White Ball).  To see what we’ve been up to – or fun things coming up – just visit our Events page here.

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 which help the GLBTQI or allied communities. Our Charities for 2016 are The Pinnacle Foundation and the Gay and Lesbian Rights Lobby.

We also do an annual Toy Run to the RSPCA in in Yagoona, donating much needed food, medical supplies and toys towards their residential programs – as well as small one off events for different groups in need.
