The Arthur Grady Ride and Display is on again this year. It is rapidly becoming an extremely popular motorcycling event in Western Australia. Last year saw around 120 bikes from all eras taking part.

The event celebrates the feats of Arthur Grady who in 1924 became the first person to ride a motorcycle around Australia. He set off from the Fremantle Town Hall and returning five months later to a rousing reception and a place in the history books.

The day will feature a running replica of the bike Arthur rode on his epic adventure as well as lots of information and pictures of his ride. The day will also feature a huge display of veteran and vintage bikes courtesy of the Vintage Motorcycle Club of WA.

Saturday 1 June 11am onwards
