What we do
Motorcycle Accident Rehabilitation Initiative.
Our service is very unique and we are the only Non For Profit of our kind in the world at the moment.
We specialise in assisting Motorcycle Riders and their Families after being involved in an accident and our service is FREE.
We are all for helping Riders & Passengers of Motorcycles getting extra care after an accident or illness that takes them through the doors of any Hospital's Emergency Department or Medical Centre across Australia. Since 2016 we have expanded the service to assisting car drivers as many of us Drive as well as Ride.
We have a team of dedicated volunteers. Please visit our Team page for more information

" Riders Helping Riders beyond Medicine "
Where we are
The "M.A.R.I / DR Wings Bike Force" head office is based on the Central Coast an hour north of Sydney.
The Initiative was formed from members of the M.A.R.I team based at the time in St Vincent's Hospital Darlinghurst Sydney.
Who we are
The team consists of members from the Sydney Motorcycle Club, BMW Touring Club of NSW as well as Members of the Ulysses Club, Central Coast Vintage Motorcycle Club & lastly the Committee For Safer Motorcycle Routes in the Hunter.
Why we care
Some of the team have been involved first hand with motorcycle accidents. It makes it easier to assist people if you have been there yourself.
Other stuff we do
In August 2022 starting on the 1st till the 31st 5 members of the M.A.R.I team will be riding their Motorcycles though a small part of NSW and a large portion of Queensland. About 7.500K's in total.
During this time on the road they will be delivering up to date information on what we do to assist riders and the carers in Hospitals. This is usually done via contact with Social workers or Rehabilitation team members.
Due to Covid restrictions and a lot of bad weather for the past 3 years this trip has not been possible. There is still a risk to our own health but riders need to know they can count on us when they need our help.
The team of 5 will be talking to fellow riders and other travelers along the way to make even more people aware of our service.
The map below shows how large the area is we will be covering during this time.
Leaving the Central Coast for Gunedah, Moree, St George, Roma, Longreach, Cloncurry, Normanton, Mt Surprise, Townsville, Mckay, Rochhampton, Gladstone, Harvey Bay, Kingaroy, Brisbane, Gold Coast, Balina, Coffs Harbour, Nambucca Heads, Port Macquarie, Taree, then home.

What they say
on her Husband Steve
These are the words I say to my hubby Steve every time he gets on his bike to go for a ride. Always, he says. I say, it’s not you I’m worried about, it’s the idiots that are on the road nowadays.
