What Are The Costs?
What does the registration fee cover?
Your rego fee of $325 covers two-nights twin share accommodation, breakfast daily, decals and stickers for your bike, two shirts and a cap, fundraising support and full mechanical and logistical support on the event.
What are the safety requirements?
All riders will be required to wear appropriate safety gear outlined below:
- Australian compliant full-face helmet. An open-face helmet is not accepted
- Leather or textile motorcycle jacket with soft armour inserts (elbow, shoulder & back)
- Leather or textile motorcycle pants or jeans with kevlar
- Leather or textile motorcycle gloves; no fingerless gloves
- Motorcycle boots. If you are riding the Adventure routes, wear adventure-style boots as you may stand up for extended periods on the dirt sections. Adventure boots must have good shin and ankle protection with support
- Adventure riders should also carry a backpack with water and snacks
Our number-one priority is safety. Speed limits must be adhered to in all instances. Concentration and vigilance on the road are paramount as individual safety is group safety.
There are some sections on the dirt roads where we will be limiting speeds and will travel in small groups due to the nature of the roads and oncoming traffic.
There will also be some fantastic long and winding roads where we will have a bit more freedom, but staying within speed limits and your riding capabilities.
This is a ride, not a race.
You will be required to pass a breath test before commencing the ride each day. Subsequent failure to read under .05 BAC for Open licence and ZERO for Provisional licence holders (under NSW law) in this test will result in the rider being withdrawn from the event. So please – have fun but know your limits and stay in control.
Am I covered under Camp Quality’s Public Liability Insurance?
No. You need your own Compulsory Third Party Insurance. As part of our Risk Assessment and Safety Requirements for Motocyc, in addition to Compulsory Third Party Insurance (CTP), all Motocyc motorbikes must be covered by either Third Party Property Damage OR Comprehensive Vehicle Insurance. The insurance policy must be valid for any vehicle to be able to participate in ANY Camp Quality-organised events.
At The Event
Do I need to book my own accommodation?
Accommodation details for Armidale and Port Macquarie will be released to all participants by 23 February 2024. Camp Quality will source and book quality accommodation for the event so we can all stay together. The cost of accommodation for the event is covered by the $325 registration fee.
Accommodation bookings are based on twin-share with fellow participants of the same sex unless in a couple.
You can elect to pay an additional fee for a single room supplement (subject to availability). Please chat with our friendly team at the time of your registration.
What about my luggage?
Our wonderful Support Crew will be driving a van and towing a trailer, where all luggage will be stored and transported to your accommodation. Please note, there is minimal space so please only pack the necessities.
What sort of breaks do we have?
We will generally have a rest/fuel stop roughly every two hours. If you are an Adventure rider, please be prepared with some snacks and water as breaks may be by the side of the road in remote locations.
What about fuel stops?
For the Road route, plan to fill up at each break or when needed at the predetermined fuel stops.
For the Adventure route, plan to carry some fuel in a bladder or similar if your bike cannot travel for more than 300km without a refill. There will be some sections that may require you to travel this distance without refuelling.
Remember, you will not get the fuel consumption you would typically get on the road when travelling on dirt or gravel.
How do I know where to go?
There is a predetermined route for each day for both Road and Adventure rides. Each morning there will be a compulsory rider briefing to explain the events, distances and timing of each day.
We also have experienced riders leading the groups and riding as 'sweep' riders. We don’t leave anyone behind!
In previous years we have used the corner man system and will do so again in 2024.
On the Adventure ride, we intend to create GPX files that can be downloaded and used in HEMA maps. If this is the case, you simply follow the line on HEMA maps. There will be more information about this as we get closer to the event.
When will detailed route maps be released?
Detailed route maps will be released by 8 March 2024.
On the Adventure ride, we intend to create GPX files that can be downloaded and used in HEMA maps. If this is the case, you simply follow the line on the HEMA maps. There will be more information about this as we get closer to the event.
Do we get to see any Camp Quality programs while on Motocyc?
As part of Motocyc, we attempt to visit schools along the way to watch first-hand the Camp Quality Cancer Education Program. Starring the Camp Quality Puppets, this important program stops bullying and helps children assimilate back into school following cancer treatment. It also dispels myths associated with cancer (such as you can't catch cancer) and helps educate children impacted by a sibling’s or parent’s cancer.
How can I fundraise?
The Camp Quality fundraising team is here to support you through all your fundraising efforts.
We can provide you with loads of information on how to maximise your online fundraising, as this is such an easy way to smash your target.
We also have plenty of hints, tips and ideas within our fundraising tool kit.
The minimum amount each Rider needs to raise is $1500, or $500 if you are a Pillion passenger. To take part, you just need to make sure this amount is showing on your fundraising page before 21 March 2024.
Just because Motocyc is over, doesn't mean you have to stop.
You can keep fundraising on your page until 30 April 2024.
Our sponsor booklet gives you options for different types of sponsorships you can get from your contacts. This booklet is great for giving to businesses when you approach them for support. Any sponsorship dollars you receive go towards your overall fundraising goal. We have had riders raise their full $1500 in one single sponsorship! We've also seen riders raise over $10,000 through sponsorships alone!
If you need any other help, please don’t hesitate to get in contact with us at [email protected].
Can I partner up with other people to fundraise?
Yes, you absolutely can. You can partner up with others doing the ride and fundraise together. Please note though, there is still a minimum to fundraise of $1,500 per Rider and $500 per Pillion. And remember, these are just minimums, we absolutely encourage you to continue fundraising to a greater amount to help support Camp Quality. More money raised = more fun for kids and families impacted by cancer.
