It’s time to polish your bikes and lube up your tattoos – the Bike and Tattoo show is coming, and it’ll be our biggest one yet!
DOB Sydney welcomes all members of the community, and this year we’re partnering up with ACON to put on a massive show with:
* Market stalls and merchandise – selling leathers, DOB merchandise, bike gear and more.
* Sydney’s favourite Rockabilly DJs – Limpin’Jimmy and Swinging Kitten
* Live performance by ShElvis!
* Bike show competition (with fabulous prizes thanks to our sponsors)
* Tattoo show and competition
* Sausage sizzle and carpark bar
* Raffle tickets for amazing prizes
ACON will be on hand with their foxy photographer and photobooth – taking photos for their upcoming women’s campaign, so bring a friend and a smile for some fun photo opportunities.
This year, bikes will need to be in by 12-noon to allow us to secure the carpark.
Entry is by gold-coin donation with proceeds going to Cat Rescue 901– helping care for abandoned and stray cats.
We have some great prizes lined up this year so don’t forget to bring your polished bike and your best tattoos.
Just today, 16 bikes and over 20 members rode on the Christmas Charity Ride to donate much needed supplies to the RSPCA Yagoona Shelters. The RSPCA Toy Run is definitely one of our best attended rides – and it’s easy to see that so many members are animal lovers.
We were also accompanied by some Boys on Bikes to help deliver presents and food to the animals.
The RSPCA has just recently opened their new clinic and animal ward, so the members were taken on a grand tour – including frequent stops to pet the baby kittens and baby goats!
Thank you to all who donated and supported this ride. The RSPCA were very grateful and gave us a special tour of their facilities and a BBQ.
Dust off your tails, Bring out the ballgowns and get ready for the best night in town. There will be dancing, drag, comedy, prizes, sexy shows and enough fun to keep you laughing for the next 12 months.
We’re going downstairs at the Imperial Hotel for the first time and we’re going all out.
We’re be trawling through the decades to bring you the best dancing music over the last century and then the brilliant Sandi Hotrod will be hitting the decks later in the evening to keep you shaking that thang. Jackie Loeb is in town and will be dropping in to say hi and make sure everyone is having a great time. Shaun Bollocks, Sovryn Buckles, Rusty Gates and Victor O’Toole will be getting their drag on and the committee is even doing a number (if they don’t fall into a heap)
The super sexy Coco is back better than ever and is bound to heat things up and Katy will be doing the sweet stuff and getting everyone sticky.
To make sure everyone remembers what they did on the night and with who, Karen will be snapping you throughout the night to make sure no-one forgets anything.
Head on over to Max Black, King St Newtown to pick up tickets or you can now buy them on line from www.stickytickets.com.au You could even contact on of your friendly committee members or come and see one of us at the upcoming events. Tickets are $20 for members & kindred/$25 for non-members presale and $30 at the door
Due to illness and unforeseen circumstances the DOB General Meeting to be held on Saturday 11th April from 4pm at the Hampshire Hotel will need to be rescheduled. Our apologies for the late notice. We will let you know as soon as a new date has been decided.
Although the rain was coming down hard when we woke up it had tapered off to the occasional drizzle by the time the committee arrived at Moore Park to get ready for everyone to arrive. A well oiled machine swung into action with KD, Gail and Lyn getting names and Nat ticking everyone off. The ride leaders had everything well in hand directing bikes, taping gels and generally keeping everyone organised. There were some fantastic outfits, some funny, some sexy and some truly out of this world.
We have some great photos of each group which are all up in the gallery. There are also some fantastic shots before and during the parade thanks to Helen and Lisa. The ride down the parade route went well with a lot of girls saying it was one of the best in many years. Apparently the police bikes as the turning circle looked great and worked well.
We had a couple of issues with bikes but only two ended up on the utes with Jay & the boys. As always a big thank you to Jay and SMW for helping anyone who needed it. Although after travelling on the back of the ute and watching the boys I think they believe the parade is all about them.
The after party was fantastic with DJ Kelly Chrome (aka Melinda Kelly) rocking the decks until the wee hours of the morning. Our entertainers, Sparky Malone and Coco, had the girls in a frenzy. Thanks to all the girls who participated on the night.
Dykes on Bikes raises funds for charities in a number of ways. We participate in the Pink Ribbon Ride and the Sydney Toy Run every year. The members also choose a minimum of two charities that we donate to each year. To do this we hold events like the annual Black & White Ball, the Bike & Tattoo Show and other events like Trivia nights.
